World of BMW: Ride to Motorrad Days 2012

2012 BMW Motorrad Days

World of BMW says its annual UK-to-Germany ride-out to BMW Motorrad Days 2012 in the heart of Bavaria will be BMW Tours’ biggest ever trip.

Over 200 riders from across the country will join BMW Motorrad UK for an unforgettable seven-day round trip from July 4 through 10, 2012, across the Ardennes, over the Vosges Mountains and through the Black Forest.

Once at Motorrad Days, World of BMW has arranged the full VIP experience for the Saturday evening, when hearty local food and steins of ice-cold Bavarian beer will be laid on in an exclusive World of BMW hospitality area in the huge beer and music marquee.

The two-day BMW Motorrad Days festival, celebrating its 12th anniversary in 2012, is the ultimate celebration of all things BMW Motorrad. On July 6-7, the Alpine town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen will come alive with the sound of BMW engines as more than 40,000 riders and enthusiasts come together for the motorcycle event of the year at the foot of Germany’s highest mountain – the Zugspitze.

Motorrad Days combines countless opportunities to broaden your motorcycling horizons, including test rides, off-road experiences and ride-outs into the stunning Bavarian Alps as well as the surrounding German, Austrian, Swiss and Italian countryside and even the famous Stelvio Pass.

There is also non-stop entertainment and activities throughout the weekend, including thousand-bike parades, stunt and skill shows, bike displays and visits from star BMW racers, riders and ambassadors.

With BMW Tours taking care of the organization and planning of everything from the Channel crossing, routes and hotels to exclusive VIP hospitality at the event, those joining the tour can concentrate on enjoying the outstanding riding and the countless attractions on offer at Motorrad Days.

Once at the event, riders can choose to stay in a local hotel, which provides an ideal base to explore Motorrad Days, or camp right at the heart of the action for the two days the tour will spend at the festival.

Prices for the BMW Motorrad Days 2012 Tour start at £599 ($927) per person, including accommodation, breakfasts, access to the VIP hospitality at BMW Motorrad Days, Channel Tunnel crossings and a complimentary Motorrad Days 2012 "Team GB" t-shirt. Riders must be 21 or over and hold a full motorcycle license.
