Tridays Festival – Austria

P1020269 (Medium)Join us for a long week-end of TRIDAYS, supported by Triumph Motorcycles, and come to this fantastic biking festival in the heart of the Austrian Tyrol.  We leave the UK on 12 June, ride through France, Belgium, Germany and Austria to the TRIDAYS Festival, where we stay on the nights of 15, 16, 17 June and then ride back to the UK, finishing on 20 June.

We’ll enjoy some of the best roads down to the event – through the Ardennes, Vosges and Black Forest and once there, you have two days to enjoy the live music, bands & beer, see the thrills & spills of the ACE RACE, test ride any Triumph bike or take guided ride outs to the Grossglockner and Eagles Nest.

All bikes are welcome to join this tour – you do not need a Triumph Motorcycle to participate (although you will see a lot of them in Austria!) – just be someone who loves to ride!

What’s different to 2016?  We have included 3 evening dinners in your tour price and we have amended the itinerary to arrive now on Thursday night and have all day Friday and Saturday at the event.
