BE THE FIRST CLUB THAT RIDES SILK66 TO CHINA


The practical advantages in riding an expedition like this as a club or group are many. For example, the fact that you already know and trust each other, and you have already travelled together before. You can trust each other’s skills on the road, and as a team you’re already experienced in solid teamwork and group planning, and already have a strong friendship and the sense of camaraderie which comes from being on the road together. As well as this, you can prepare for the ride or expedition together, sharing information, inspiration and resources.


GROUPS AND TOURING CLUB INCENTIVES


To help support your RTW ventures, VRTW offer a number of incentives for groups, touring clubs and chapters. Here are some options that might help YOU join this incredible adventure with us:


OPTION 1 - YOU RIDE FOR FREE

If you organise 15 riders to participate in one of our larger expeditions, YOU RIDE FOR FREE as the 16th rider.

Your place on the expedition is secured after all 15 other riders have signed up, and started their preparation process.

This initiative has a minimum value of €18,500 and a maximum value of €40,000 to you, as the Group Representative.


OPTION 2 - CLUB RATE - €500 REDUCTION PER RIDER

VRTW will give a €500 reduction per rider, for any of your club members who would like to participate in one of our international expeditions in the 2018 - 2019 season: SILK66 - ALASKEY50 - 115RTW.





OPTION 3 - CROWD-FUND ONE OF YOUR CLUB MEMBERS TO RIDE TO CHINA

Each member pays the same amount of EUR into a club-managed VRTW Expedition fund. You hold a competition in the clubhouse or at your local dealership, and the winner (or a nominated chapter representative) gets to join one of the expeditions from Europe to Shanghai with us. VRTW will also contribute €500 into your ride fund.


OPTION 4 - PART-FUND ONE OF YOUR CLUB MEMBERS TO RIDE TO CHINA

The club holds an exclusive competition, where each member adds the the same amount of cash into the fund, to buy their ticket. All member’s names go into a barrel / drum / bucket / hat, and whoever draws the winning ticket gets to use the generated funds towards financing their VRTW.world expedition. VRTW will also contribute €500 into your ride fund.


N.B. The above options may not be combined with each other to achieve further reductions, so please choose which single option best suits your requirements.

RIDING OVERLAND TO CHINA


For the first time in history, the overland route from Europe to China is now very rideable for motorcycles of any type. Thanks to massive Chinese investments in Silk Road infrastructure and improving conditions for international trade, the Central Asian road network has undergone a massive improvement and development initiative in recent years.


We have been riding many of these roads for the last 10 years and watching the development, and these days, most roads along our routes are now layered with fresh asphalt, so conditions have improved greatly, over the past 10 years alone. What was once the exclusive domain of offroad and Enduro riders, is now open to V-twin riders and motorcycles, so everyone is welcome to join us!
