Off-Road tours for Trails and Maxi-Trails

As last year, we have designed a tour 100% Off-Road for each day, suitable for trail motorcyles. In addition, for riders with passenger or for people who prefer the asphalt, we've also done three interesting on-road tours. Tours are not guided, although you should ride in a group. We will install the tracks to the GPS of every rider. Eduard, the event organizer, will do off-road tours.

La Chance will give a picnic to eat along the tour, so it will not necessary to find a restaurant.

PARTICIPANTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR SAFETY AND MAINTENANCE OF THEIR MOTORCYCLE.

We recommend equipping the motorcycle with knobby tires and wear the appropiate gear. The 3th tour will end with a mini circuit of dunes, for those who wants to feel the sensation of floating on the sand with his trail motorbike.

 

Game on track

Last year we added, available for all the participants, a game into every route. As we have so much fun with it, this year we will also organize a new game in which you will need your camera. Do not forget to bring it, as you will be able to win a great prize.

 

Mechanical assistance 4x4 pickup

Our trusted mechanic joins us in each route to help us in any eventuality. The 4x4 pickup is equipped with everything needed for basic repair and rescue bikes. The car will close the group for safety.
