 The thrill of cutting through the wind; calm cruising through through forests - our Biking Adventure Tours deliver an unforgettable experience that will leave you dreaming of a new life on the road.

We ride with you as part of the group on a motorbike. All you need to bring is a love of the open road and a free spirit.
Option of hotels pre booked, or just book as we go, wherever we end up.

Unplug and step away from day to day life. This ride is designed to change your life. It is about life on the road, meeting people, and exploring your own mind as you do something you love — ride. Our guided tours are designed to allow you to touch upon the freedom bikers feel while on the road.

This is your chance to unplug, and live in the moment. Live in the present, on the road. When do you ever get to do that?

You might know how ride a cruiser or motorbike around town, but when you hit the road with a group of other bikers & photographers  the whole atmosphere is different. Being on the road. Out for adventure. See what comes our way. Our tours are well planned trips, but not so regimented that there is no adventure. There is nothing like being on the open road out for adventure. Let’s hit the road, and leave it all behind.

All you have to do is choose to make your dream of riding on the highways or offtrack. We leave from one place and stay in a different city, town, or oasis every night. This is the real thing, life on the road, without as many dangers that follow a solo rider.

Just Ride Free! Anyone can ride a bike, but there is more out there.

Come join us for your motorbike holiday. We will have a blast. We handle it all, and answer any questions or concerns you might have. All you have to do is show up.
