To the Land Where Lemons Grow ...

In the summer of 2020, it is time for another velomobile tour. We will be heading south this time, beginning out of Rosenheim, facing the beautiful panorama of the Alps. Via Brenner Pass day one takes us across the mountain range to Italy, where the adventure begins. All over the peninsula we will ride down to Palermo, Sicily. A ferry cruise will take us back to Genua. From there the route heads north towards the Swiss Alps, and we will cross via Maloja Pass. Soon we’ll reach the Inn valley and leave Austria for Bavaria, returning to Rosenheim. That’s it.

Three weeks, about 3.200 km, one great ride.

The tour will be organised the same way as the previous tour: a private ride, all riders following the same schedule, with each rider assuming full responsibility for his or her own actions. We will be camping as we normally do, and we will have a support van to help out in emergencies and break-downs.

The tour dates are: June 28  - July 18, 2020.
Participation in the tour will be limited to 24 riders (plus captain). Registration will open on October 5, 2019. All applications will be reviewed and need to be confirmed by the Tour Captain. Riders who have successfully completed the Roll over America Tour, the Great Baltic Sea Ride, or 3Wheels4France will have priority registration for Ancora un Giro.
