Eastern European Vintage Bike Rally

Eastern European Vintage Bike Rally

Join Transylvania Rider’s Eastern European Vintage Bike Rally in Turda, Romania. We gather, every year, in July, to remember old times and enjoy the new ones!
Don’t miss Cheetah bike race on the salt track and Vintage bike street race on Turda’s streets - a competition founded in 1947.

The arrival date for 2011 is Thursday July 14 with the events going over the weekend of the 15 to the 16 and leaving on the Monday the 17th.

The rally includes
Vintage Bike Street Race on the streets of the historic city, Turda

Cheetah Bike race on the salt track

• Parties


Here 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.

The famous Old Bloke will participate to 2012 edition Eastern European Vintage Rally

The new 2012 edition of Eastern European Vintage Bike Rally from Turda Romania will have as a special guest the famous Olb Bloke on his 100 year old bike FN2.

Who is the Old Bloke?

Hi, I’m Ron Fellowes, a fast approaching septuagenarian. Not that this makes me any wiser, but it does prove I’ve been around the block a few times….and fallen off!



Fabrique Nationale


FN is a Belgium company established in 1899 to make arms and ammunition and from 1901 to 1967 was also a motorcycle manufacturer. FN manufactured the world’s first four cylinder motorcycle and became famous for the use of shaft drive in all models from 1903 to 1923. In 1905 the first 362cc shaft drive in-line FN inlet-over-exhaust four cylinder motorcycle appeared. This was the world’s first manufactured four cylinder motorcycle. These pioneer machines had a five bearing crankshaft with pedal assist.

Just like to say, we can vouch for this event. We went to this in 2006. What a blast! Well worth the trip, great people and a great country. Sadly we can't make it this time. Just back from a 3 week round trip to Croatia and Bosnia, no more time off work
