RRL Rider’s Tour Through Paris Kicks Off Sunday, May 25
Sunday May 25th will witness 200 motorcycle riders on their custom café racers and cruisers, accompanied by a fleet of vintage cars, tour 99km (61.5 miles) through Paris and the surrounding countryside on behalf of Blitz Motorcycles and RRL.
It will be loud, exciting and visually stunning, with some of Europe’s most dedicated riders showing off their awesome, personalized machines and strong sense of aesthetics. In true Blitz style, there will be a real mix of engines: BMWs, Harleys, Hondas, Triumphs, all customized, and all individual.
The RRL line was created in 1993, designed as a dedication to authentic vintage denim. The Blitz Motorcycles garage was founded in Paris in 2010 by Fred Jourden and Hugo Jezegabel to specialize in unique, vintage motorcycles.
The tour will depart from Porte de Saint Cloud in the morning and take nearly three hours to travel through the Castle Dampierre, Chevreuse Valley and Versailles, before finishing at the RRL flagship store in St Germain.
The tour is open for all motorcyclists. If you’re going to be in or around Paris during this time, you can register for the ride via http://www.rrlriders.com/rrlride/join.
