When? Friday 31st of January until Sunday 2nd of February 2014


We are keen visitors to various winter meeting. Last year we organised one winter meeting by ourselves the very first time. (Here some impressions). Unfortunately our first winter meeting was a fiasco, because exactly at the meeting weekend winter decided to make a short break. We didnt have snow and it was far too warm. So this meeting was a kind of test meeting only. Anyway we had a lot of fun and therefore we decided to try it again in 2014. 
The date is chosen because on the first weekend in February there are a lot of winter meetings. The biggest and most famous Elefantentreffen and the Tauerntreffen which have become quite big in the last few years.
On this weekend we want to go the extra mile and offer a Ural meeting for winter drivers, an alternative for those who are looking for something different. Without big organisation, without big effort, without big hoopla from our side. The tavern has a wonderful friendly atmosphere. Franz Leiter, the inn keeper ensures a warm welcome for all.

In the castle ruin of  Prandegg there is normally snow at the beginning of February and a guarantee of cold conditions. Within the grounds of Prandegg there are good places for camping, we can also sleep on the galleria in the dining area of the tavern. In the surroundings area of Prandegg there are also cheap rooms.
We will definitely have a heavy winter tour of the area. We know all the hidden lanes and tracks in the area. There is not a single flat place in the whole region, there are piles of natural adventures at our disposal. For sidecars without sidecar drive it is better not even to start the engine.

Of course every sidecar driver is welcome, we do not want Ural and Dnepr exclusively.  Visitors with solo bikes are also welcome, maybe we can convince one a few disbelieving heroic solo riders to become a sidecar driver. For visitors from far, very far away, who arrive with trailer, we recommend to hide the trailer in the village Pregarten. The landscape of the last 22 km ride to the castle is really very attractive.


Saturday morning between 10 and 11 we will dare to start our tour. The route of the tour will be determined 5 min. before the start and depends on the number of participants, the weather and above all the snow condition. Our plan is a really mean drudgery for man and machine.


2 kilometers away from the meeting place in Pehersdorf 18, it is the farmhouse of Josef Kriechbaumer, known as Uncle Peter. A great farmhouse with horses. The room per person per night incl. breakfast is EUR 24,00. there are also  communal bunks for Eur 16,00 per person per night incl. breakfast. Please book the room yourself if you need one.




Best thing is to reserve by telephone:  Tel.: 0043/(0)7261 7402


Registration for winter meeting:


We are looking forward to a small, uncomplicated and comfortable meeting. Because at the same time there are more famous meetings, we expect about 50 participants. There is  no entrance fee (the Innkeeper will of course charge you for beer and food).


The tavern with campsite

Winter as ist should be..
The castle ruin as scenic background

The tavern

Firewood, probably not sufficient for the meeting

The cheap rooms...
Room enough for stunning trips
