1st. European Cade Raid from 29th of June to 2nd of July 2007 at Harlingen, Holland The First European Cade Raid was attended by 25 people, 1 child & a dog riding pillion on a Yamaha. Altogether there were 15 Cavalcades; 3 from Great Britain; 2 from Holland; 2 from Germany; 1 from Finland and 7 Cavalcades from Belgium. Belgium has the largest amount of Cavalcades of any European Country. The chosen campsite was at the the end of a dyke built to keep the sea from a inland lake. The site had good provision for camping as well as rooms and cabins for hire. The food was very good although not a lot of chose, but who cares when you are on holiday and there’s plenty of beer to drink. On the Saturday we had a ride out led by Leo Schneider ending up at a town called Sneek. Here we enjoy a little light entertainment from some guys doing a commercial for the town. One dressed in am orange suit and the other two in traditional Dutch costumes. The sun was out for a change and we all enjoyed a few drinks and a light snack. Then it was back to the campsite for the evening and after a meal we all gathered to decide where we go in 2008. After a vote the decision was Belgium, Friday 4th to Monday 7th July 2008. On the Sunday most people made their way home as they had work on the Monday and sadly by mid afternoon there were only the British left with a night visit by Leo and Sheila. A great time was had by all and many new friends were made so make a note of the dates and join us next year at the 2nd European Cade Raid in Belgium. Cade Raid 2007 was organised by David Hebblethwaite and his team
