Edelweiss World Motorcycle Tour Arrives to Morocco

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Austrian motorcycle tours company Edelweiss has planned a the biggest guided motorcycle tour ever. The tour, which is once around the world, kicked off on November 21, with enthusiasts from the US, Canada, Brazil, Great Britain, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria taking part at the expedition.

The tour will last for eight months and no less than 40,000 miles (64.374km) of riding. Starting in Mieming, Austria, the group rides down to Southern Spain, then Morocco and further until they reach the Western Sahara.

Back in Malaga the group flies to Buenos Aires, Argentina. From there they ride down to Ushuaia and back up to Bogota, Columbia. After crossing the Panama Canal they cross all of Latin America and ride up to Los Angeles, USA.

After the flight across the Pacific Ocean the group starts the Australian section in Sydney from where they ride across the Red Rock Country before they reach Perth. The last section starts in Bangkok, Thailand and the route covers some of the most exciting countries in Asia before they finally return to Mieming, Austria on July 27, 2011.

“On November 21, 2010 the Discover our Earth motorcycle expedition started. 30 enthusiastic motorcyclists from all over the world will discover our planet on two wheels in the next 248 days,” Edelweiss says. “This extraordinary run will be operated in cooperation with Kevin and Julia Sanders of GlobeBusters, who hold the Guinness Book record for the fastest circumnavigation of our earth on a motorcycle!”
