Dear friends,
Seeing the weather forecast, I think wise not to organise a bbq once arrived at the lake, but rather meet at the Youth hostel of Insenborn, where we can share a drink or eat whatever they have, and to eventually take a bath in the lake for the most courageous.

The schedule doesn't change:
-9:00 Luxembourg main train station.
-10:15 to 10:30 Mersch train station
-11:15 to 11:30: Ettelbrück's train station
-around 14h at the Youth hoste in Insenborn.

Don't forget to take snacks to eat during the riding, as well as enough water.
Have a helmet and gloves, and Wear warm rain protection jacket that you can open.

Thanks.
Roberto

Dear friends,
Hoping that the weather forecast for next week is more promising, let's redo that wonderful day that we shared last year all together at the lake.
Should the weather not nice, we will postpone to the week after.

For those who don't want to ride, and just enjoy the BBQ, Rendez-vous at Protected content

For those who want a medium level ride with a very beautiful landscape, RDV at around 11:00 am at Ettelbrück's train station.

For those who want to warm up, a bit before, RDV at around 10h15 at Mersch's train station.

Finally for those who really want to deserve the lake's chill, RDV at 8:45 next to the Luxemburg train station.

This activity is for bikes with multi-road wheels, or ideally mountainbikes. I'm afraid that road bikes could broke, as we have to cross a forest path.
It's very easy from Lux to Ettelbrück, although the distance is more than 30km, but medium level from Ettelbrück to the lake.

Ensure enough water (min 1,5l) and energy bars in any case, as it's a quite long ride.

I'll bring chairs and a table, and some plastic plates and glasses to the lake, as well as the BBQ.

Anyone is invited to bring his/her own meat, salad and drinks at Ettelbrück train station's parking, where my car will wait for us.
Something to share and people to help are also welcome ;-).
Let me know via private message.

For the return, a bus Inselborn-Ettelbrück is available, then Ettelbrück Luxemburg by train -> 2 EUR all trip.
Unless you could manage a return with cars and friends...or even retun back by bike for the most courageous.

Note that I can only take one more bike with me in my car.

Hoping that many of you can make it, enjoy life in the meantime ;-)
Roberto
