TLM's L'Apertura Tour
7 April 2018 - Seasonal opening ride
Saturday, April 7th, we are opening the motorcycle riding season. We have searched for a great touring ride upon the best roads and through the best sceneries. The route starts and and ends at our new location Lagelandseweg, Nijmegen. When returning to our shop we’re lighting up the barbecue. This ride is a great opportunity to hit the road, meet new people, or meet up with old friends. Even if you don’t ride a Moto Guzzi, Vespa, or Piaggio you’re welcome to participate. The program in short:
08:30 - TLM open
09:30 – Gathering, coffee and group formation
10:00 – Advisory start time Apertura route
16:30 - BBQ (participation fee)
At 10:00 the Apertura Tour will start. The intention is not to ride in one big group, but we advise to ride in smaller groups consisting out of 3 to 4 motorcycles for your own safety. You will be riding the route individually and for your own responsibility as usual.
After returning to Nijmegen the BBQ will be lit around 16:30 and you can enjoy a great meal for a small fee of € 12,50 per person. We do ask you to pre-register for the BBQ by email, or by filling in the form below. Participation in the ride is free of cost naturally!
