Winter Motorcycle Rally - Minervois

Instagram

It's that time of year again in the Minervois, Languedoc-Roussillon - it is winter and the local motorcycle club, Les Picrates (meaning a bad quality red wine, almost vinegar), host their annual rally in Azille.  At the end of February, not for the week of heart, only the hard-core, real 'bikers' will dare to come...sometimes they line their bikes up in the snow and cold, arriving from as far as 2-300 kilometers away for a weekend of fun!

Wake up (or not) to a warm breakfast giving you the courage to get on your bike to take a tour, set up in advance by the Picrates.  An apertif with oysters & drinks offered to everyone, then trophies are passed out for the oldest, youngest, furtherest traveled bikers (among several other) all precede lunch (also included in your entry fee), then 'back on the road again", as Willie Nelson sings!

Put it on your calendar for the 28th of February and contact me for the registration details

Happy Riding!
