Varano de' Melegari (Parma) - Italia
organized by


This year's European women bikers' gathering will once again take place at Varano de' Melegari. This repetition of venue confirms Varano as a reference point for all European, and more particularly Italian, women motorcyclists.
Organized by - the Italian female motorcyclists website that counts 1500 members - this year's event will be enriched thanks to the precious collaboration of BMW Motorrad Italia, so as to offer a great variety of experiences to an ever-increasing number of motorcyclists: from track riding to all-terrain, from travel to mechanics, not to mention that ingredient of fun and festa that spices up life on two wheels.

To take part, all you need, is to be a woman and to love bikes!

Within the Paletti racetrack at Varano, the girls will be able to improve their piloting on track in the safest conditions and under the guidance of the instuctors of the Siegfried Stohr "Guidare Pilotare" School and Mototrek.

Beginners' driving courses will be held in the equipped paddock area, using a BMW C1 and a F650 Scarver, and are intended for those participants who have never driven a motorcycle.

There will be advanced driving courses to brief intermediate level motorcyclists with theory sessions and practical tryouts, with hands-on exercises in the paddock area and on track.

For the more expert pilots, there will be free track sessions, under the attentive supervision of the BMW instructors who will offer their theoretical feedback to help improve your technique.

Introductive all-terrain courses will take place on the specific off-road area of the autodrome and offer the girls a primary approach to all-terrain driving, using BMW F650 GS bikes kindly provided by BMW Italia, with Mototrek instructors.

There will also be a whole range of BMW bikes available for on-the-road tryouts.

Maintenance and technical courses, conducted by BMW mechanical experts intermittently in the box area, will focus on enriching one's technical knowledge: how to cope with a sudden technical failure or fault, clean the spark plugs, go about changing the lubricants, lubricate the chain, check the dampers, the fluids, repair a puncture, etc.

Various workshops will take place in the boxes: "my motorcycle" will tackle how to choose a bike, adapt it to suit one's personal requirements (seat, handlebar, pedal adjustments), how to fine tune it to best suit your needs (city use, track use or travelling, etc.)

There will also be the Travel workshop: how to prepare your motorcycle for a long trip, what to check before setting out, do's and don't's about luggage, advice and tips by veteran travellers.

Motorcycle and Health Workshop: get to know the most common medical problems that occur to motorcyclists, learn how to prevent and cure them; build your little first aid box to take with you on trips, what to do and what not to whilst waiting for the ambulance.

There will be a beautiful touristic itinerary to take the girls along the foot of the Apenines, in beautiful natural surroundings.

Saturday evening: festa time in the paddock of the autodrome! There will be a dinner, music and prizes.

The participants will be able to sleep in the boxes in their own sleeping bags, next to their motorcycles.

The enrolment fee for both days is 65 EURO.
