What is the TET?
Inspired by the Trans America Trail, the TET (Trans Euro Trail) is a 23,000-mile predominantly off-road ride across Europe.
It’s a community derived route pulled together by experts called Linesmen who are rich with local knowledge.
The idea is that it is 100% legal with the simple ethos of encouraging respectful motorcyclists to embark on a ride or an adventure of a lifetime. Typically aimed at smaller bikes, the TET is also tackled by many on big adventure bikes. It’s not a race or a competition so if the going gets too tough, you can simply find an alternative route. You can either stay in hotels, B&Bs, campsites or, where permitted, wild camp.
All the information you need including downloadable GPX maps that can be put straight into your satnav can be found at www. transeurotrail.org. Another great resource is the very active TET Facebook page where people share their trips in real time.
And it’s a free, non profit making resource simply aimed at celebrating motorcycle adventure. How refreshing!
