You've read about it in these pages, probably even considered going: our annual Alps Challenge Tour, organized by Edelweiss Bike Travel. This year's Alps Challenge promises to be especially epic, as it takes place in the stunningly beautiful Austrian Alps from June 21-29. We'll start in Munich, Germany, ride southeast into Austria's picturesque Lake District, then head to Graz, one of Europe's best-preserved Alpine villages. From there we'll head west, traversing challenging switchbacks on our way to Zell am See, a high-end resort in Salzburg. Great food, great riding and even better camaraderie are all part of the deal. But then what would you expect from the evergracious Motorcyclist staff?
Prices range from $3530 to $5110 depending on your choice of bike and accommodations. Choose from BMW R- and K-models (GSs are a favorite), Ducati Multistradas and STs, Suzuki V-Stroms and SVs, Honda 600s and even Harleys.
