In ride 2 of the Operation Overlord we are going to start with some other sights of Normandy and some lovely riding on small winding roads through pretty villages. But this being the Operation Overlord tour we will also bring you to two more Operation Overlord highlights that, if you are interested in this part of history, also should go and check out. The first one being the place where the first house in occupied France was liberated in the early morning of 6 June 1944. The second one where the allied forces had built an impressive artificial port that played an important role in the operation after D-Day. And this all in a combination with 190 km / 118 miles of nice motorcycle riding!
