23. - 25.6.2017 PAC 2017, Romania

Few weeks before zero moment, we come back with more information:  
 

As already announced, Romanian Friendly Sidecar and Classic Bikes Gathering – PAC 2017 will take place on the 23 – 25 of June 2017 weekend, at Camping Dragoske from Burlusi, on National Road DN73 C connecting Curtea de Arges with Ramnicu Valcea.

 Passionate riders do agree that destination is not important, but the road leading to it, so this is the main reason for picking this geographical area.  Riders crossing the mountains have two routes available, including two of the most spectaculars European roads – Transalpina and Trasfagarasan.

Those coming from the south may also take the complete Transfagarasan tour on Saturday with return on Olt Valley or just the short tour, only for a quick snack at Cabana Balea on the shores of lake Balea- the highest altitude lake of Europe.

Those willing to discover some of the beauties surrounding the camping should just get on the steel horses and hit the road! If you take the national road to Curtea de Arges, you will enter the mountains. But before that, you can stop and visit Curtea de Arges Monastery {N 45.156751 E24.675219} built between 1515 and 1517 by one of Romania’s early kings, Neagoe Basarab. If curious, you may as well stay a little while to discover the legend... As the traveller is better off on roads, head for the beautiful TRANSFAGARASAN on National Road DN 7C towards Baraj Vidraru! Before going deep into the mountains, on the left side, there is Vidraru electrical power plant {N 45gr 21'00,2'' E24gr38'00,1''}. For those history geeks, this is the right place to stop and visit Poenari Citadel, but bare in mind that you need to be physically fit to actually climb 1480 steps to get to the citadel’s gate. The story of this citadel is linked to Vlad the Impaler – the one who inspired Dracula character. From the top of the mountain, the citadel offers a great view over the Arges valley.


Keep going and you will get to Vidraru Dam built on Arges river dating from 1965. The view is breath-taking! Here, off road lovers may choose to return by crossing Poienile Valsanului. Just keep going on National Road DN 7C for about 2 km, where there is a road on the right side, heading towards the forest {N 45gr22'06,4'' E24gr39'03,1''}. Once in the forest, keep the forest back road through the beautiful scenery of the Poienile Valsanului. When reaching the T cross, go right, down the Valsan valley. Keep going through the canyon until you get to the main road on Bradetu village. Then the easy part will come, on the properly marked asphalt road to Curtea de Arges.


Distance from camping to Vidraru Dam: 50 km.

Off road tour from Vidraru Dam to Bradetu village: 30 km.

The complete tour, including the two of the above: 120 km.



As this is a friendly gathering, the famous MP3 will help you get into the mood on Friday evening and also on Saturday evening, with a little help from some live guitar player by the camp fire.


Ad hoc contests of skills, best story teller, the luckiest biker, the best mechanic, the cleanest / dirtiest bike, the best fuel economy – this one will be definitely won by VanDam - etc. will have as prises the winner’s increased self-esteem and, possibly, one more beer with friends.


Please send your lodging options as there is a limited number of rooms with own bathroom / camping bungalows / caravans. Fans of tent camping do not need to make a reservation because there is plenty of space, though it would be nice to inform us about their intention to come so that the camping owners can make sure we do not run out of beer when thirst is higher...
