Day 1 Arrival in St Paul de Vence

Finally everybody made it to the beautiful starthotel, some without luggage, but with riding gear. So we csm start tomorrow. 

Bikes ready for take off

Day 2  Vence - Valberg  305 km

What a first riding day that was. In perfect weather conditions we went to the Grand Canyon du Verdon an on really spectacular roads to Valberg. That was a twisty ride, no kidding! The red Canyon Daluis was a blast.


Day 3 Testday loop in Valberg 270 km

Of course the group did not really want to rest. Everybody went for a ride. And whstca ride that was! Challenging roads in the morning, a fantastic picnic at a lookout point and the red canyon again in the afternoon. 

Day 4 Valberg - Vicoforte  300 km

Because of a big landslide at Col di Tende, we had to change the route for today and went over the Col de la Lombarde. Not a bad alternative. It was great! Great scenery amd riding. But before we did the Col de Turini, a famous Tour de France and Rally Monte Carlo pass. Hotel Portici in Vicoforte welcomed us with snacks an bootbeer. 

Day 5  Vicoforte  - Rapallo  280 km

The first full riding day in Italy. Challenging roads and some detours because of landslides.But the group did really well. Hazelnut cookies in Cortemila and Spaghetti for lunch. Bootbeer at our hotel right at the beach in Rapallo was the perfect end of the day.


Day 6  Restday loop to Cinque Terre  250 km 

Today was extreme, extremely beautiful.  Some took a rest, but most of the group went for the restday ride to Cinque Terre. The exciting SS1, a ractracklike mountainroad in the morning and the picturesque villages of Cinque Terre for lunch made it a great day in motorcycle paradise.

Day 7  Rapallo - Finale  255 km

Today we had some blocked roads again, but great riding and a fantastic lunch in the mountains. The weather is still fine. Tobight dinner in a castle!!!!!!


Day 8  Finale - Vence  310 km

Unfortunately our last riding day,  but one of the best. Never ending twisties and great scenery. On top we had some sightseeing in Zuccarello and Peille, two beautiful medieval villages. 

We arrived save in Vence and it is time to day good bye to a great group. Well done Ladies and gentleman!! See you on the next trip
