Trifest France News - TOGA in 2020

In 1959 the first TOGA event took place and almost 500 TOMCC Members descended on Brussels. Eight years later the second TOGA event took TOMCC to Paris. Now, 52 years later, plans are in place to take TOMCC Members abroad again - to the lovely Vercors in South-East France for 5th to 12th September 2020.

TOGA (Triumph Owners' Go Abroad) is a Trifest event (Trifest France) and is open to all Members of the TOMCC - however other European Triumph Clubs may also be invited to make it an international event. It will be based in the lovely Camping Iris Parc Le Château de Galaure which offers some great facilities and static mobile homes and tents (so you don't need to bring your own). An approximate price for a week's accommodation is £250.

There will be daily runs for both Classic and Modern bikes, and at least one trip to a distillery with lunch for prize giving. Of course, you can always do your own thing. The nearby towns of Grenoble, Lyon, and Valence could provide a day visit for shopping. The Route Napoleon is a must-ride with impressive gorges and cliff-side roads. There are a host of other attractions in the area - some of which we will be organising trips to.

The week is being organised by a British Triumph enthusiast who lives in the area. It may be possible to arrange to have your bike shipped to an airport hotel at Lyon if you don't want to ride them down there.

To pre-register for the event, please contact the Club's General Secretary (secretary@tomcc.org).
