Map of the Vespa Tour 2021

Because of Corona 2 tours instead of 1

Due to the uncertain situation at the borders and the almost impossible planning as well as corona-related delays in the feedback from organizations and clubs, I decided at short notice to split the tour into a Vespa Gentleman Giro Germanica and a European tour and at the same time independent relays through Vespa clubs in 10 countries to start. The 2021 tour takes me through 5 countries and over 6000 km and can be seen as a warm-up for the 2022 main tour.

The roughly planned route

25,000 km through 40 countries in Europe. The specific route will depend on the 200+ clubs I would like to meet on the way to collect donations.

For the tour I use a Vespa V50N from 1971. It will be the longest 50cc scooter ride ever.

Impressions from the Vespa Giro Germanica 2017

I carried out my first donation trip in 2017 and visited 5 countries in 42 days with a result of over € 25,000 for the Children’s Cancer Foundation and Children’s Cancer Aid. The forest pirate camp in Heidelberg was specifically chosen as the target.
