VÅRRUNDAN 2013 - Spring Thaw Ride MOVED: 25th May 2013

As many of you already know, Vårrundan 2013 has been postponed, due to the extreme (late) winter weather / road conditions we've had in Skåne during the month of March ... Sorry, but in consideration to the land owners, road conditions, and for Vårrundan to deliver the quality of riding and event we are known for - there was no alternative but to find an alternative date later on the calendar.

Now the staff at Solhaga hostel / camping - where we will hold Vårrundan 2013 - returned with an alternative date, where we have access to the entire facility / accommodation according to the original plan. It has been a little tough to find a suitable date - with all the "public holiday" weekend activities / group bookings, and celebrations which usually fall in April/May... But now, in collaboration with the staff and another group (who had actually booked the same weekend), it has been possible to solve! (Thanks so much to "house mom" Pia at Solhaga - who has juggled the ball with this issue over the last week).

All other aspects of the eventschedule / logistics are the same as original plan ... only now that we are moving the date seven weeks because of winter weather, for what will hopefully be a much nicer / warmerer date - on friday 24th/saturday 25th and sunday 26th of May.

Next weekend (over Easter), I will deal out about 350 information leaflets to all the mailboxes along the route, to inform residents about the change.

Moving the date creates a small disruption in our planning and logistics ... but if we follow a fairly simple "three-step action" (I have sent information by e-mail to all 79 nominated participants about what / how / when rebooking must be done), we will be able to fix it in a relatively smooth manner.




1. Participants that have already registered, get first chance to state whether they wanted to ride on the new date... Those registered participants have until (next) Friday 29th March to confirm their place.

2. If a nominated rider cannot / does not want to participate on the May 25th date, they can sell / give their place to someone else (and they are welcome to offer their spot on the various forums / threads on SOE.se, fraggel.se, adventureriders.se, here at ADVrider.com or facebook, etc.). They have until Saturday the 6th of april to sell / exchange their place with someone else and inform swedish.moto-safaris (with a confirmation e-mail) about the alternate participants name and contact information.

3. From Monday the 8th of april we will put out any vacant placess to other riders who wish to join the new date (25th May) and register as a participant.

Notifications for Vårrundan 2013 (25th May) close Friday the 25th of april (end of week 17) ... then I can inform the hostel about the EXACT number of rooms / beds catering required, etc.. one month before the event.


Regards,

Safari Troy

Cool2 Calling from ice station zebra...

Last weekend on the Thursday / Friday over Easter weekend, Camron and I ducked up to Markaryd
(about 80 km's from our home on Helsingborg) to where Vårrundan 2013 is to be held, and dealt out
approximately 350 notices to all of the mailboxes along the Vårrundan 2013 route, and inform residents
that we had postponed the event until the 25th of May... because of the snow/road conditions.

Why was Spring (Thaw Ride) postponed I hear you ask...?

Well... if you’re wondering, then just look at the pictures below...





Unfortunately only 40 to 60% of the course lokked like this (or we could have run with spikes as a snow rally )...
but the remaining bits were bare ground and would have obliterated the spikes anyway (besides being diabolical on dirt/gravel)...
so we were niether Arthur or Martha... so to speak.

Thumb Last minute discounted spots... Vårrundan 2013

50% of the reserved nominations are vacant ...

One week left before entries close (on 25th of April) to VÅRRUNDAN 2013 (Mk II) - now set for the 25th of May)... and still half of the places are vacant...

On May 25th Vårrundan will take place ... the same 250 km route, the same 30 km navigation test, same wonderful offroad special test on the slopes of Kungsbygget ski resort (we have the place for up to one and half hours, on saturday morning) and an extra 20 km "alternative loop" on the afternoon stage for those who want.

ADDITIONALLY, on Sunday (the 26th May), we have access to the "special test slope" for 3 hours (free-riding) between 11:00am to 14:00 pm. There will be BBQ and soft drinks during the riding... and (if interested), possibly even a "Troy's special hideaway" tour (a 'la' follow the leader rapid style) for those who want come along.

This offer stands for (Vårrundan participants only) who want to join on sunday... group ride from the Solhaga hostel at. 10:30 am sunday ... or meet up at Kungsbygget parking lot at. 11:00 am.

NO admission to the slope / track until 11:00 am ... nominated VÅRRUNDAN participants only.

Now with only a week left until the registration period runs out (and 20 participants have not confirmed their entry) I release 20 places (bed & breakfast x 2 nights accomodation incl. roadbook tour) for the "LAST MINUTE" price of SEK 1000:-

For these 20 places, contact swedishmotosafaris@yahoo.com with your confirmation details (include your full name, forum nick, motorcycle, mobile number and family name / phone no.) and you will be sent payment details. Nomination subject to confirmed payment.

Last entry / confirmation date is the 25th of April

thanks in advance,

I wish I could be there! I'm currently living in Arizona and ride a Super Tenere, but was born in Sweden and grew up just outside Kungsbacka. Even though Arizona and the southwest has some amazing scenery, the opportunities over there to catch some amazing stuff are endless! Ha de bra and drick inte for mycket ol lol
