6th European Cade Raid at La Bresse, France. July from 6th to 9th of July 2012 The Cade Raid was held this year in the picturesque region of Alsas, France in a little village called La Bresse, mainly a ski resort. There were 15 Cavalcades in attendance this year. One only came for the Saturday, has they live over the border in Germany, just 2 hrs from La Bresse. The group was made up of the following countries: 6 Belgium, 3 Netherlands, 3 German, 2 Norwegians and 1 British Cavalcades. As Usual there was a ride out on the Saturday with Sunday being another ride or rest day if preferred. The scenery in the area was excellent and La Bresse is well worth a visit if your in that part of France. The site had camping and a small hotel, a restaurant that only opened at breakfast and for hrs in the evening serving only burgers, fish fingers, etc., that meant no bar after 8:30 pm., so most people went into town for a meal and a drink every day. In the restaurant on the Saturday night after the meal, we were lead into a sing along by Geir from Norway , and prompted by Leo from Holland, there was a rendition of Alice and I don’t have to tell you the chorus do I. I would like to thank Yves Rummens for all the hard work he put into finding this site and for organising the entire weekend. This included booking a hotel near his home taking us out for a meal on the Thursday night and taking through a very interesting route to the Cade Raid. Cade Raid 2012 was organised by Yves Rummens and his team
