This is a four day guided motorcycle tour to visit the beaches, Pegasus Bridge and important sites from the D-Day landings on 6 June 1944. We will be at the beaches during the 75th anniversary year of the landings.
The D-Day landings began the liberation of German-occupied northwestern Europe from Nazi control, and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.
The British and Canadian forces landed at Gold, Juno and Sword beaches and we see all three of these as well as Pegasus Bridge and where the first wave of the attack took place after landing in gliders.
We visit the beaches along Normandy’s coast where the American landings took place at Juno Beach, where we see the bunkers and then onto Omaha Beach, known as Bloody Omaha. We visit the Normandy American Cemetery and we also go to St. Mère Eglise, where the ‘Band of Brothers’ fought.
