THE ADVENTOURING from A to Z
The HARDALPITOUR, also known as HAT, was created in 2009 by Corrado Capra. Its formula inspired the off-road motorcycle tourism, now called Adventouring.
The HAT is a 24/36 non-stop adventure-trip for teams ma
de up of three bikers, mainly on dirt roads with GPS tracks. The HAT is open to maxi touring-adventure motorcycles whose weight shall exceed 150 kg. This is a non-competitive ride with no timing. The aim is to enjoy the routes, panoramas and natural beauties together with friends who share the same passion for this motorcycling. When you arrive to the finish, you’ll get your certificate of participation!
