France/Normandy and the memorials.

by trikeman   October 31, 2012  

Hi All,
I and a couple of buddies are thinking of touring the war memorials, invasion beaches etc in France/Normandy on the bikes. Anybody done this type of trip and where did you stay? - any recommendations?
There are 'organised' trips that I have seen but we were thinking of just going along at our own pace and where we like, we intend planning the trip so we see what we want, the limiting factor is accomodation. The internet has lots of B&B's around the area - just looking for recommendations really.
We were thinking of just a few days, ride down to Poole way, then across on the ferry to Cherbourg. Our kit will be going over by car so no worries with tons of clothes etc.
Anyone done anything similar?

Regards,

Trikeman. Wink
