To the cry of WE COME TO RIDE we left for Umag in Croatia to discover the new and great event designed for those who love to ride a motorcycle: Four Points Festival.
Justin Canovas, creator of the event, has well thought of creating something for those who love to ride a motorcycle and discover new places. After touring the world on two wheels, his idea materialized for the first time at this edition, where we didn't stop for a moment. Simply perfect.
So forget the hours at the bar, wandering around stalls, or sitting around talking about motorcycle. Put on your helmet and start the engine, because here we go by motorbike. Here is our story of a truly unforgettable weekend, spent almost always in the saddle, in the company of over one hundred participants from all over Europe and many Italian and foreign motorbike travelers.
What is that
It is not a rally, it is not a rally and not even an event for a few. To the Four Points Festival you can come with any two-wheeled vehicle, because there are activities for everyone, from on-road to off-road routes (easy), from motocross to more technical enduro.
You come alone or in company, but after 3 days you all know each other. You ride together or alone, you turn to win something or just for the pleasure of discovering new lands. People come to the Four Points Festival to ride a motorbike.
Where it is held
We have been to the first edition that was held in Croatia, Umagon the Istrian peninsula. The base camp for our adventures was Camping Stella Maris, where there were both pitches for tents and comfortable cottages for several people. It goes without saying that most of the travelers who arrived here traveled half Italy and not only that, to immediately get into the spirit of the event.
We started from Milan, passing through the Asiago plateau, Conegliano, Grado and Trieste. A long journey between the Alps and the sea, chosen to discover new areas between Veneto e Friuli before diving into the beautiful Istria.
What do you do
The principle is very simple: you arrive by motorbike and you go in motion from morning to night, at least for us it was so. The cost of participation includes the chosen accommodation and the main activities, others, such as testing the motorcycles from Dakar Rally Rally are doable with a little extra.
By motorcycle you can choose whether to go on the road or off-road, alone or guided by expert riders of local roads, you can take some technical driving lessons with expert riders or follow the waypoints of the tracks provided by the organization and whoever collects the most wins. very very interesting prizes.
If you come with a cross or enduro bike you can have fun in the cross / enduro park a few kilometers from the base camp. Then of course in the evening, the only moment of calm and relaxation, we spend the evening together tasting local dishes and not a little beer.
In our opinion, the “zero” edition has already been a real success, above all because we have come away from Croatia with the fixed thought "I can't wait to go back". So I would say promoted with honors and see you at the future events of 2022 which are scheduled in: Andorra, Luxembourg and Sweden.
So, see you in 2022, why We'll come to ride!
