Winter Motorcycle Rallies 2017 / 2018 season

Winter rally season - It's the most wonderful time of the year!

For those that are inclined towards getting freezing cold on a bike and camping in a damp / icy / snow bound field here, for your convenience, is a list of events targeted at the more lunatic fringe of the motorcycling community. All are UK / European events, if you know of any rallies not on the list, drop me a line and I will include them.

Quick disclaimer - all dates are probably correct, check for yourself to make sure. Most events will be ticket only. Winter riding and camping is very obviously not a walk in the park, make sure man or woman and machine are well prepared for all eventualities.

Icy Ale Rally. 1 to 3 December 2017, UK. Druids MCC.

Force Ten Rally. 5 to 7 January 2018, Warwickshire, UK. Mayflower MCC.

Krystall Rally. 15 to 18 February 2018, Oset Høyfjellshotell, Gol, Norway. Just because it is in a hotel don't think that this is an easy option. Temperatures this time of year can drop to minus 20 degrees.

Altes Elefantentreffen. 16 to 19 Febraury 2018, Nurburgring Germany. Confusingly the 'Old Elefant Rally' is in fact the upstart new Elefant Rally and held at the Nurburgring.

Primus Rally. 23 to 25 February 2018, Velmunden near Bjøneroa, Norway.

Primus Borealis Rally. Mid February. Just South of the North Cape, Norway. Not sure if this one is still running but it merits inclusion by nature of being the most extreme.
