• Parties

Party at the RallyHere is how our friend Adrian Trim from UK saw us: The Transylvania Riders club of Turda has about 30 members all of which work for the club and all love bikes. They all have road bikes of one form or another and part of the rally consists of ride outs to show you the best scenery. The club members are interested in classic machinery and especially German and British bikes because they come from the era when they were closed off from the rest of Europe.

This rally is for everyone on whatever sort of bike and irrespective of age or size.

There is a very good mix of machinery in the club so do not worry about coming on your Matchless or Vincent or BMW.

The rally is in Turda a town with a lovely atmosphere, classic architecture and a rich past. If you are looking at a map of Romania then Turda and the Turda Gorges are in north central Romania about 30 km south of Cluj Napoca.

Once you realise the price of good beer and wine you will probably not want to return.

Plenty of English is spoken and you will find the people are friendly and open. No visa is required and you can get green card extension insurance from your insurer to cover Romania.
You can stay at the very special and very luxurious Dracula Hotel. There is secure parking and it is just off the middle of the town as are the other two standard but good hotels.


If you preffer you can camp in your own tent.
