TRAVEL - Three trips in evidence: Balkans Challenge, The Pyrenees by XNUMXxXNUMX, Adventouring on the Moroccan tracks
Forerunner of the discipline Adventouring, author of the great success of the legendary HARDALPITOUR, today of the entire HAT SERIES calendar, Corrado Capra studies the trips, then organized by a leading tour operator, fielding great experience and continuous and in-depth scouting to discover landscapes and territories, to times still unexplored, to guarantee travelers the opportunity to experience their own motorbike in safety and visiting countries, villages, woods and valleys with landscape, historical and cultural characteristics of absolute charm and exclusivity.
And it is precisely on three of the trips proposed by OVER2000Riders that we want to place a focus, as interpreters of exclusive motorcycle routes and experiences, a mix of travel, culture, tradition to live together with travel companions animated by the same passion and the desire to discover and explore on your own 'two wheels'.
An exclusive journey from 7 to 17 June, to discover the Balkans, along a itinerario incredible of about 2.000 km that unites six nations: Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania. A journey that will cross endless mountain ranges and plateaus, favoring the naturalistic aspect of a territory that is still partly unexplored. The route will encounter a great variety of landscapes, uses, customs and cultures of a territory that inherits monuments from the Ottoman domination. From the highlands of Bosnia to the mountains of Montenegro, from the Serbian monasteries of Kosovo to the pastures of Macedonia to close along the winding tracks of Albania. The route is very varied and technically not difficult, but quite demanding for the length of the stages. An effort rewarded by majestic environments and views. Crossing these mountains, meeting and communicating with the rare inhabitants, helpful and kind, being able to observe rhythms, lifestyles and activities that we have now abandoned, will represent a unique unforgettable experience for all participants.
THE PYRENEES IN OFF-ROAD
An off-road itinerary of about 1.300 km in a loop for a journey through the Pyrenees, which will take place from 21 September to 29 September, perfect for lovers of uncontaminated places far from time. The route reaches Ainsa and returns on the Spanish side, up to the starting point. The track is the most varied you can think of, from the slopes in the plain amidst expanses of olive trees to the high altitude roads over 2.000 meters above sea level, from the technical and stony mule tracks to the forest tracks that cross pine woods. All in a very suggestive scenario, between abandoned villages and ancient towns, along the coast lakes and historical sites characterized by the almost total absence of traffic and people. The landscape in some places recalls that of the Sardegna and Morocco, the language and gastronomy are Mediterranean ones.
ADVENTOURING ON THE SLOPES OF MOROCCO
A route of about 1800 km, of which 60% to be covered on dirt roads, will be held in the heart of Morocco, one of the most beautiful and fascinating lands in the Mediterranean basin, from 16 to 24 November.
