Cannonball Bike Run 2019 |
12 Nations Challenge
This is it. The Big One. The greatest challenge in Cannonball Bike Run history. Seven days, 2800 kilometers, 12 countries (and possibly even an island….)
The 15th CBR will start on Sunday June 23rd in northern Italy and end a week later in Budapest – the magnificent capital of Hungary.
In between we will be going where no CBR has gone before….12 countries in just one amazing week: Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania and Slovenia. It WILL be epic.
This Cannonball pushes the boundaries of riding but of course some things will not change. The by now famous blend of fabulous roads from mountain peaks to the shores of the Adriatic Sea; from sweeping valleys to twisting forest routes. At the end of a hard day’s riding you can expect classic countryside hotels and uber modern city residences – all with secure parking.
The actual route is kept secret until the event but we understand that the CBR is all about the journey and the routes will be hand-picked and pre-ridden so you can expect the best riding you have ever experienced.
And riding in the last week in June means the weather will be good and the roads quieter as the summer season does not start until July 6th. You will get to enjoy the roads without all the traffic of July and August.
If you want to join what is sure to be the ultimate European motorcycle adventure of 2019 then you will be in great company. In 2018 riders from nine countries took part and bikes ranged from KTMs and BMWs to MV Augustas and Ducatis; from 600 to 1200cc; from adventure bikes to sports bikes. Everyone is welcome.
This is no ordinary event. Be prepared for a week like no other and memories that will last a lifetime.
And of course all of this is magnified by the quite fantastic people that you will meet on the CBR. Cannonball camaraderie cannot be put into words. Put simply you arrive as a stranger and leave as a friend. For life.
