Similar events abroad attract hundreds of people on each event day and when they become established, they also attract a niche market segment of tourists that enjoy travelling with their bikes to such events. Besides, one will have the possibility to camp and enjoy a bikers’ lifestyle, even if you do not have one, and most importantly you can drink responsibly without having to drive back home.
Don’t have a camp?! We also have a supplier that can rent all camping gear required for a very good price.
