Five days. YOU decide where you will travel. You make all the decisions.  You ride thousands of miles. It's just you, your GPS Sat-Nav and the Rally Book. Will you bite off more than you can chew? Join some of the best Navigational Rally riders in the world in this five day event.

 For those of you who have not participated in this type of event before here is what you can expect:

 You will be handed at least one rally book containing details of various "bonus locations" throughout Europe. Each location will have a different points value. YOU must work out which of the locations you should visit to collect as many points as possible in the available time. The challenge is to piece together a route which you can ride and arrive at the bonus locations when points are available - some locations may be day time only, some may be night time only and some may be restricted to certain time periods.

The IBA European Tour is designed to appeal to Novice Rally Riders and those with Multi-day Rally experience. You can ride as many or as few miles as you wish. You may be happy to simply finish the event and gain Finisher status. Or you may wish to test your abilities and aim for a high place finish. It's up to you. No matter what your game plan is, you will have the opportunity to tour Europe like you've never toured Europe before.
