Hint 1


The price tag beneath the cupcakes shows you how much the whole pack costs. From that, you can figure out how much each individual cupcake cost. Het prijskaartje onder de cup cakes laat zien hoeveel het hele pakket kost. Daaruit kunt je berekenen hoeveel elke individuele cup cake kost.




Hint 2


Look at the first pack of cupcakes. They are the same, and 4 of them cost 12. So how much would only one cost? Kijk naar het eerste pak cup cakes. Ze zijn hetzelfde, en 4 van hen kosten 12. Dus hoeveel zou er maar één kosten?




Hint 3


It's 3! Now, if that cupcake costs 3, how much would a chocolate one cost, based on the next pack of three cupcakes? Het is 3! Als die cup cake nu 3 euro kost, hoeveel zou een chocolade cup cake dan kosten, gebaseerd op het volgende pakket van drie cup cakes?




Hint 4


Replace the cupcakes you already know the cost for with a number, and subtract this number from the sum. Vervang de cup cakes waarvan u de kosten al kent door een getal en trek dit getal af van de som.

Hint 1


Compare the weight of the cupcakes to rate them from the heaviest to the lightest. Vergelijk het gewicht van de cup cakes om ze van de zwaarste tot de lichtste te beoordelen.




Hint 2


The easiest way is to first find which one is the heaviest. De eenvoudigste manier is om eerst uit te zoeken welke het zwaarst is.




Hint 3


You can make a comparison in different ways. Look at the cupcake with the cherry. It's heavier than the strawberry and the chocolate cupcake combined. And the strawberry is heavier than the violet cupcake, which means the cherry is definitely heavier than violet too. Use the same logic to rank the cupcakes. Je kunt op verschillende manieren een vergelijking maken. Kijk naar de cup cake met de kers. Het is zwaarder dan de aardbei en de chocolade cup cake gecombineerd. En de aardbei is zwaarder dan de paarse cup cake, dat betekent dat de kers zeker ook zwaarder is dan de paarse. Gebruik dezelfde logica om de cup cakes te rangschikken.

OTHER FAQ'S

WHAT ABOUT Motorcycle HELMETS ​​in EUROPE?


You’re not comfortable with a helmet that only meets the US Government DOT standard.

The ECE (Economic Community of Europe) 22.05 rating is the most widespread helmet standard internationally, required by over 50 countries worldwide (especially Europe).

Full face, Moduler or "Flip-Up", Open face or 3/4 helmet are allowed with ECE norm.

In other words a DOT only helmet may not be legal in every country.

Also not wearing a helmet may invalidate your insurance. Be warned!




DO ALL HOTELS HAVE SHOWER AND WIFI?


Yes. We are only staying in most 4 and 5***** hotels.​

They all have private shower or bath, as well most as an internet-connection.​.

All hotels are chosen by their nice location and services.​

So you will be able to take a fresh swim in most of the hotels, stay at exciting places, and will have all necessary comfort after a riding day.




WHAT ARE THE RULES ABOUT THE LUGGAGES & ROOM KEYS?


Your entire luggage will be transported from hotel to hotel during the whole Posse ride.

Please take note :

  • Only 1 bag per person is allowed!!!
  • The bag can only have a weight of maximum 20kg (44Lbs)!!
  • The bags always need to be dropped off BEFORE BREAKFAST in the truck
    or at a central place in front of the hotel when mentioned otherwise.
  • After the ride, when the group arrive at the hotel, you need to pick up immediately
    your personal bag at the truck personally.
  • The room keys, already sorted, will also be given to you there.

Our truck drivers will make sure all bags are identified with a name tag from first day,
so no confusion is possible. Please let them know if you lost your name tag (rally package).

Our truck drivers will make sure your luggage arrives safely at the next hotel and they will try to reach the hotel with your luggage before you do.

You are personally responsible for your own luggage,
so don’t leave anything behind in the hotels!




WHAT ABOUT ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS?


Electrical equipment for your mobile phones, shaving machines …

Please make sure you have European plugs/travel adaptors to be able to load your batteries!! You can buy them in almost every airport!

Europe electrical outlets provide
220-230V 50 Hz





THE JOURNEY

CAN WE DO A PART OF THE RIDE?


No, we have only limited number of 80 places available.

It was already very hard to find hotels in all these different regions for more than
80 people for 1 or 2 nights, so only participants who are doing the whole ride can join in.

Another reason is that there are several costs included in the price, like the rent of a truck, the packages, administration, financial costs, which are calculated for the whole trip.




WHAT DO YOU MEAN WITH GROUP RIDES?


Because of the large number of participants, we divide the group into 3 or 4 smaller groups.

These groups will ride separately and will leave one after the other, with a 10 to 15 minutes interval.

Every group is guided by at least 2 Group Leaders, and the groups will most of the time meet at the lunch location and always at the hotel in the evening at dinner.




HOW ARE THE PARTICIPANTS SORTED IN EACH GROUP?


This distribution is thoroughly done in advance, and to make sure you have the possibility to get to know other participants and Group Leaders. These groups will change every 2-3 days, So it's possible that on one day you will join Group-01 and the other day, you will ride within Group-02. Of course, we will not separate couples and personal friends, they will always ride in the same groups, but please let us know in due time. On a daily basis, you will find the name list of each group in our
" DAY BY DAY INFORMATION" guide, and is also displayed in the trucks.




WHAT DOES THE EUROPEAN POSSE RIDE CONCEPT MEANS?


Let me try to explain:

The vision of the European Posse Ride has always been:Discovering Europe by ridingand we didn’t want to change that, so the E.P.R. will never become a collection of City trips but will always be an adventure to ride and discover the finest places in Europe.

But instead of changing cities and hotels every day we will stay in the most beautiful places one or even two days longer. On those days we will provide each Rider a variety of Rides in that Region which will be guided as before by our team leaders.

We will provide a Ride from and back to our hotel where each Posse Rider can choose day by day if he wants to do a ride, or even stay in the hotel, visit the City, or ride on their own.

This also means that we can offer Rides that couldn’t be done during the transfer trip
of the day. For example planning a trip in the mountains where we will conquer several passes on one day, having a day trip to a legendary city and enjoy their monuments, beaches, clubs, restaurants…

We do keep some leisure days where we don’t organize Rides but ask the local
H.O.G.® Chapter to do for us. And of course there will be parties with local Chapters!!!!!

For participants not wishing to ride, we offer also alternative activities in some cities.

We believe that by this concept we match Riding and Enjoying with big Fun.

Hint 1


How do you think, which of these cookies are tastier than the others, judging by the amount that was eaten? Hoe denk je, welke van deze koekjes zijn lekkerder dan de andere, te oordelen naar de hoeveelheid die is gegeten?




Hint 2


The more of the cookie someone ate - the tastier it is, of course! Hoe meer koekjes iemand at, des te lekkerder is het natuurlijk!




Hint 3


Now, compare the partially eaten cookies to the whole ones. The colorful sprinkles on top of it will tell you which is which. Vergelijk nu de gedeeltelijk opgegeten koekjes met de hele. De kleurrijke hagelslag erop zal je vertellen welke dat is

We know that the strawberry wafer is 32 cm. How much are the others, compared to it? We weten dat de aardbeienwafel 32 cm is. Hoeveel zijn de anderen in vergelijking met die de aardbeienwafel?

Hint 1


The clock shows you when the test started. So the time when the next candy started its test, the previous one finished it. De klok laat zien wanneer de test is begonnen. Dus de tijd dat het volgende snoepje met zijn test begon, maakte het vorige af.




Hint 2


That means the first candy only lasted 10 minutes. Dat betekent dat het eerste snoepje maar 10 minuten duurde.




Hint 3


The last candy is tricky. The test started at 55 min. But how long did all the tests combined go? Het laatste snoepje is lastig. De test begon op 55 minuten. Maar hoe lang gingen alle tests samen?




Hint 4


It all lasted for an hour, so the last candy lasted for 5 minutes. Het duurde allemaal een uur, dus het laatste snoepje duurde 5 minuten.
