Travels with my Harley

and, sometimes, other two-wheeled machines


Hotel Troníček

Some pubs tolerate bikers, but occasionally you come across one that not only loves them but, indeed, actively encourages them to visit. One of these is the Hotel Troníček. The hotel, where you could stay if you wanted, incorporates a public bar and restaurant with both inside and outside tables and is to be found less than […]

Poděbrady 2022

Sunday, April 3rd, 2022 The “Season Opener” event for the Prague HOG traditionally takes place on the first Saturday in April. Together with the Harley-Davidson Club of Prague (HDCP) we ride the comparatively short distance to the spa town of Poděbrady about thirty five kilometres to the north-east of Prague. It is a Harley led […]

Ride And Roses Event (R.A.R.E.) Day – 2021

Sunday, October 3rd, 2021  Although this was not a HOG Prague event, Lucie and I were pleased to attend a charity ride organised as part of the so-called “Pink October” which was to support women with breast cancer. Numerous HOG people were involved and a key organiser was HOG member Martin Šrámek who works for […]

Independence Ride – 2021

Saturday, May 8th, 2021 A big club like the Prague HOG loves predictably timed “events” – people can make time for them and we get a larger turnout. But, for the second year in succession, our “Season Opener”, the ride, to Podebrady which always takes place on the first Saturday in April, had been cancelled […]

A ride to Mělník

Saturday, October 30th, 2021 – Mělník I do like to spend time in the saddle of a motorcycle, but not all long rides are good ones – my final day in the U.S.A in 2006 was a case in point. Sometimes you just have to knuckle down and grind it out. By the same token, […]

Centenary / Independence Ride – 2018

Saturday, May 5th, 2018 The year 2018 was the one hundredth anniversary of the creation of the Czechoslovak State which emerged from the ashes of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the end of the Great War. Although the formation itself took place quite late in the year, on October 28th, as 2018 was the centenary year, […]

Austria – A Hundertwasser tour

July 2021 – In search of more Hundertwasser. Every adventure begins somewhere and so here is the boring preamble …. I would just like to begin by noting that in 2019, Lucie and I enjoyed two wonderful holidays. Firstly, in the Spring, we visited Israel and Jordan. Despite this being a more “conventional” sort of […]

Prague to Salzburg

Wednesday, July 21st, 2021 Distance travelled 363 km It is rarely that anything goes exactly according to plan, so it should not come as any surprise that our departure, although well planned for nine o’clock was delayed by circumstances beyond our control. After weeks of torrential rains, the weather had calmed down and we cooled […]

Salzburg to the Faaker See

Thursday, July 22nd, 2021 Distance travelled – 216 km Lucie is a big devotee of weather predicting apps on her iPhone and iPad. Although these had presented a rather uncertain forecast at bedtime, the first thing we saw with the naked eye, when we woke up (at exactly 05:00 !) was a blue sky. I […]

Egg am Faaker See – and Lake Bled, Slovenia

Friday, 23rd July, 2021 Hike around the Faaker See – 11km Trip to Lake Bled in Slovenia – 117 km It is almost a standing joke between Lucie and I that, on holiday, we frequently get up much earlier than we would do at home. Well, at least she does ! If you have followed […]
