Travel along the Mediterranean coastline to Genoa and down to Rome.

From Venice head to Bikers Point on the Grossglockner and return to Calais.

A ride of a lifetime. Due to the high mountain passes this event can only be run between certain dates because of the high altitude and the fact that the roads are only passable at certain times of the year. The European Coastal Challenge will take place from 20th May – 20th September each year.

Those riders and pillions who enter the European and Coastal Challenge and who also enter The Challenge or Classic will not be required to raise sponsorship money for these additional events, although any amount of sponsorship will be greatly received. They are still required to pay the entrance fee of £3 for either the Challenge or Classic.
