- Never been there
- Chance to go abroad on the bike (never done that)
- Chance to use the Channel Tunnel (never done that either)
- Interest in runes, and Dark Ages history generally
- Offer from a local to show me the best bits
- Chance to meet new people (although this is a bit of an aventure too, as I have no idea if they are middle-aged sprocket-polishers or Hell's Angels wannabees intent on shooting rivals using my bike as the getaway vehicle - but the bikes-only dedicated year-round campsite sounds promising)
- European beer, in quantities.
I now have a new tent!
