Status as of Feb 9: Taking Bookings 40% Full Still some good bikes but need to book soon
DATES: July 27 to August 7
This is less like a tour and more like a bunch of guys riding and exploring Europe. It was originally conceived as a 50th birthday party tour. Expect a just a whee bit too much to drink and a lot of laughs. Vienna is the city of Mozart, Strauss, home of the waltz and it still pulses to the tune of “Wine, Women and Song”. The pace in the mountain curves is quick but safe. In the towns we keep it down. If you need some time off, some old fashioned fellowship and goofy laughs then this is the trip for you. Some early bookings snuck in and we already have enough people to bring a luggage truck on this one. While yes we hit some amazing roads in the Alps and across Bohemia we actually take a day together to explore Vienna’s sights by day and sumptuous night life in the evening.
