Breil sur Roya

After the successful international meeting in 2002 in Salbertrand, Italy
and the one in Kobarid, Slovenia in 2006, we now want to invite you to France.

 Our organization team scouted on three occasions in 2008 and 2009 (fotos). 
We collected all necessary information, reserved some nice campsites and worked out some great tracks and trails for riding. 
Now you can spread the word.

Sorry, there are no bungalows left in Breil-sur-Roya.
You may try: Camping Les Madeleines at Sospel!


For a general overview of the area we suggest Michel Cote d’Azur.
Michelin, Cote d'Azur, Nr. 115 ZOOM

Cote D Azur Michelin 115 Zoom

For a more detailed map here is the best and most important one:
IGN (Institut Geografique  National) Valle de la Roya N4. 14.

IGN 3841 OT

If you are really into maps, you may want to get this one as well:
Institute Georgrafico Centrale, Imperioa Monte Carlo Nr. 14. 
This will show you more information about the Italian side the Ligurian Grenzkammstrasse . 

(Italian border – Liguria region).


Attractions in the area:

Not far from the campsite in Breil-Sur-Roya is a public swimming pool.  Entrance is free for campers.

The Mediterranean Sea is only 20 km away.  Nice is about 50 km away, and on the route is Monaco/Monte Carlo.

On the campground’s website ( www.camping-azur-merveilles.com) you can find information about non motorcycle related activities.

Tips for the meeting:

If you want to visit the numerous WWII bunkers and trenches a flashlight is essential.
For tires – there’s no mud or sand.  The ground is primarily gravel and rocks and big rocks – make your choice accordingly.
If you’d like to look at the diary of our trip you can find it at  Sospel-Erkundungstour 2009.
It may help you but it’s in German. There are many pictures to give you an overview of the area.


Please let us know in advance if you are coming, how many people in your party and how long you’ll be staying.
Nevertheless, we don’t want to discourage spontaneous show-ups?

Please mail to: 2010@xt-500.de

We ask that you treat the campground and other campers with respect and use common sense when in the camping area. 
Therefore, no engine fine tuning, no engine revving, no joy-riding to the bathroom.  
We want to try to keep the noise level to a minimum.

Thank you!

Please forward this information to all of your XT 500 and TT 500 owners.  

Also welcome are XT250, HL500, Heos 500, Barigo 500 and Cheney500 riders.

 Look forward to seeing you there.
