3 days and 650 km of rolling paths and country roads, bivouac, sharing, meetings and memories guaranteed for this now legendary human adventure!
Event open to MOTORCYCLES (trails / maxi-trails / electric / side-cars) - Opening of 2024 registrations: 11/03/2023 at 8:30 p.m.
3 traces are proposed :
- "The Extreme" addresses the regulars offroad, without presenting impassable difficulties.
- "The Adventure" makes Paris-Dunkerque accessible to bikers who have never put their wheels elsewhere than on the asphalt. This trace bypasses the main difficulties of the "Extreme".
- "The 100% bitumen" offers a fallback solution, in case of tiredness for example.
A week before the start, each registrant receives all these GPX GPS tracks (standard), TRB (Tripy), PDF (paper), in order to be able to pass freely from one to the other during the 3 days.
If you do not have GPS, you can rent (when registering) a GPS / Tripy II electronic roadbook reader.
The trace we deliver to you is not obligatory, you will be able, at any moment, to leave it to go to visit a touristic place, take a coffee, or to arrive earlier at the bivouac.
Paris-Dunkerque uses small roads and motorized roads open to traffic. By registering at Paris-Dunkerque, you agree to respect the Highway Code, residents, animals, nature, roads... especially with regard to speed and noise level. The future of our hobby depends on everyone's behavior!
Do not hesitate to consult our FAQ to discover all the details.
For what types of motorcycles and which level ?
The Paris-Dunkerque is designed for trails and maxi-trails, we recommend a motorbike greater than 500 cc. For lighter motorcycles, thank you for contacting us.
"Old", sidecars and electric motorcycles are also welcome!
Young people (18 years old minimum), less young, beginners in offroad or skillful, everyone exchange and share his experience, that's what makes the charm of this event.
No competition, no stopwatch, no ranking. The speed must be reasonable, respectful and adapted to the situations and encounters.The difficulties encountered are quite adapted to the motorcycles of the market, without preparation except adapted tires (nipples or crampons obligatory).
Depending on your pace, the stages last between 8 and 10 hours.
To let you manage your days and drive at your own pace, you are free to organize your lunch.
Friday evening and Saturday evening, all participants and any accompanying persons meet for dinner, just to discuss the adventures of the day. The bivouac spaces are designed to welcome your tents and are equipped with showers and toilets. Nothing obliges you to participate in bivouacs, you are free to choose the accommodation of your choice (at your expense in this case).
If the water is provided by the organization, the other drinks are not included in the registration: on each bivouac a bar is at your disposal, at your expense.
The Paris-Dunkerque lasts 3 days. Only the 3-day package is offered.
