Tour the Pyrenees for Two Wheels for Life| BSN Staff | General News
Ever fancied touring France and the Pyrenees while raising money for charity? Well, now’s your chance as Two Wheels for Life teams up with Yamaha for a new off-road motorcycle experience.
The new Ténéré Travel Trophy will run for a week this year from June 10 to 17 and will travel from Paris, France to the Pyrenees across breathtaking landscapes in France, Andorra and Spain with the experience allowing Yamaha Ténéré owners to raise money for vital healthcare work in Africa via the British based charity.
The Ténéré Travel Trophy offers anybody in possession of a Yamaha Ténéré or Super Ténéré manufactured between 1983 and today the chance to take part in this very special adventure.
The entire route, created in collaboration with Yamaha Motor, Benelux branch, and is an ideal opportunity for adventure riders or those less experienced to develop their skills while taking on five stages of perfectly crafted routes, perfectly suited for Ténéré motorcycles. Just 200 places are available on the tour so booking early will ensure riders don’t miss out. The Ténéré Travel Trophy will cost €999 for each person to ride their own bike on the event.
During the five stages you can expect routes off the beaten track with a combination of paved and unpaved sections - mostly wider tracks with some single-track elements too. For every off-road section, there will be an on-road alternative to give beginner off-road riders the option of detours when they find their limits.
On registration, seven Euros of each person’s fee will be donated to Two Wheels for Life, with Yamaha Motor Benelux promising to boost the fundraising total of the ride to €7k. All of the funds raised will be donated to Two Wheels for Life to be used to support programmes ensuring life-saving healthcare reaches people living in some of the most remote parts of Africa.
