JOIN THE RELAY
On 26 May, 90 chapters from 13 countries join forces to embark on a fantastic adventure. In no fewer than 90 stages, they will collectively ride a relay.
What is a relay? A relay is a ride consisting of a set number of stages (legs), and each leg is run by a different team. The team finishing one leg is required to pass on a baton to the next team.
The Great Relay ‘21 consists of 90 legs where one H.O.G. chapter passes on the baton, in this case a brand new H-D Pan America, to the next H.O.G. chapter.
The relay starts in London and each successive H.O.G. chapter will ride the Pan America through Luxembourg, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland. Wales, Scotland, Engeland, Northern Ireland & Ireland.
The complete relay will take 14 weeks, starting on the 26 May. A total of 15,000 adventurous kilometres will be travelled with the bike, the ultimate test for this brand new multi-tool on wheels.
Each stage is an open ride-out, and everyone can join. Starting point is always the local H-D dealer. The local H.O.G. chapter sets out a great route that ends at the next H-D dealer.
Whoever you are, and whatever you ride, you are very welcome to join these open ride-outs.
The route runs 15,000 km from the heart of London, through the Ardennes hills to the North Cape in Norway and takes you through the most beautiful places in Europe. On the way we cross hills and valleys, we see mountain lakes and glaciers, we follow rugged fjord coasts and we pass the Arctic Circle. We ride through extensive national parks, and picturesque fishing villages and along roads with snowy mountain ranges and unspoiled nature. Once on the North Cape we will hopefully be rewarded with a phenomenal view of the famous Northern Lights.
But this adventure doesn’t end there. After the North Cape we head south again, to where Santa Claus lives, and then cross into Finland for a beautiful extra loop through this amazing country. Check out the entire route and all participating H.O.G. chapters and H-D dealers here.
Welcome at the H-D dealer
Each ride-out starts at one Harley-Davidson dealer and ends at the next. Each chapter will be warmly welcomed by the chapter that belongs to the next dealer – sometimes with a snack and a drink, and sometimes with a complete BBQ or a party. Of course you will find the latest apparel and riding gear, the most creative customisation experts and the complete 2021 motorcycle line-up at these Authorized H-D dealers.
