TransAlenTTejo is our oldest and our biggest event. It's how everything started back in 2009. This event is the "Bring your bike" event, and for this reason the number of participants is usually higher than all other tours in our calendar. Obviously we have our fleet of KTM 450 EXC model 2016 and 2017 in perfect condition. If you prefer to fly & ride, that's the best option. Every year we organize 2 editions: Spring edition: Usually in end of March / beginning of April it's a 3 days off-road, with GPS navigation for around 550 kms in the north part of Alentejo sometimes touching Ribatejo and Beira Baixa. Autumn edition: Always in the 2nd half of October, it's a total of 4 days off-road, with GPS navigation for around 750 kms in the south part of Alentejo and Algarve. As tested in 2019 we will use transponders, enabling us to track you at all times and create a ranking base on navigation accuracy ! The registrations are limited !
