3 to 5 August 2018
Music Weekend

During the weekend of 3-5 August we are organizing our summer music event. Of course we will order great summery weather for this weekend, but no guarantees, because last year the weather let us down a bit. So some Hail Mary’s are welcome!

Music Quiz

We will start the Music Event on Friday night with a fabulous music Quiz, a brilliant idea thought out by us and Marc Stakenburg of Musictrails.nl.

This quiz will require some good listening and thinking and will require a lot of your music knowledge. Luckily you still have plenty of time to study and practice! More info: www.musicTrails.nl

TIP: As the quiz is in the Dutch language, we advise everyone who doesn't speak the language to sit close to the quizmaster and use the microphone function of Google Translate so you can participate!

Drivingroute with swinging turns

On Saturday we will take our motorbike for a spin through Luxembourg and the Belgian Ardennes for some swinging turns and rocking roads.

Live Music - The Bayou Mosquitos

Saturday evening The Bayou Mosquitos provide fantastic live music. The Bayou Mosquitos from Amsterdam play music from Louisiana and Texas with an important role for the lyrical sound of the accordion.

Their repertoire focuses on Doug Sahm, Allen Toussaint, Ry Cooder, Flaco Jimenez and The Band. With special stories and beautiful images they are put in the spotlight. The four 'compadres' look with great pleasure for right tone for each song and also play their own songs.

The Bayou Mosquitos exist for 25 years and released a vinyl EP with four new songs in 2015, which guest appearances from Beatrice van der Poel and Ramón Sánchez Balderas.

Abel de Lange: vocals, guitar, dobro, lap steel, bajo sexto
Marius Bos: accordion, piano, vocals
Louis Ter Burg: mandolin, banjo, percussion
Ad van Beusekom: standing bass, vocals

7 to 9 September 2018
Women-Only Weekend

For the 15th time I organize a weekend for women only. It’s for women with true girl power and knowledge about motorcycles, engine power and some serious driving skills. In the Baton Rouge bar there is a lot of talk about motorcycles and other related matters, but also holidays, work, relationships, love and clothing.

We are known as the “Scheurmutzen”, which is quite difficult to translate to the English language. The name represents the motorcycle helmets we wear (muts = hat/cap but also the female gender), being female and driving fast (“scheuren” in Dutch). Because of this nickname we are known for having lots of fun together, on arrival on Friday, during the ride on Saturday and the party in the bar on Saturday night. After the ride on Saturday we kick of our motorcycle boots and drop them in a corner together with our helmets and dance the dust off the porch all night long.

MotoMe Victory Octane test & Women-Only Weekend

Costs

This event lasts from Friday to Sunday and costs: € 127,- p.p in the shared sleeping area and € 137,- p.p for a room.

If this event is like music to your ears and you are the proud owner of a cool motorcycle, I challenge you to join and experience the “Scheurmuts”-way of things in the Ardennes with us!

If you want to sign up for this event or need more information, send an e-mail to Hetty Everaarts at: batonrouge@benhet.be

19 to 21 October 2018
End of the Season Party

Every year during the last weekend of October, we organize a very special and festive End the Season party. The motorcycles are tucked away in the garage for the next season and it’s time to clear the provisions in storage so we can start with a clean slate next year.

Like every year it is always a very nice gathering with great motor stories from that season and preparing some tasty dishes together while enjoying a delicious Belgian beer.

Maybe there is even the chance to take out the motorbike for a spin, because there have been years that it was more than excellent for a wonderful autumn ride.

The Winter of 2018

After busy season, we personally always long for the quiet winter months, we can recover from all the hustle and bustle and have some spare time for all kinds of projects and chores in and around the lodge.

Usually we go on vacation, but this winter, if everything goes as planned, we hope to open our new location.

So a very good reason to have an extra festive weekend at the end of October!

More info will follow later this season, so keep an eye on the website and our Facebook page!
