Nick’s Corsica tour report!

2018-10-16T13:57:26+00:00

I always get excited when he starts to check the tyre pressures, brake pads, tread, oil level, gives me a clean and he sticks on all those Magellan stickers – yep, we are off on one of my favourite trips and it is the start of the touring season. An early start for me as he wants to get past Lyon before the morning traffic – we are staying in Reims tonight which is where we usually stop over but, it is certainly colder this year than last year! Tucked up safely for the night in the underground car park [...]

Billy’s Morocco tour report!

2018-06-07T14:51:34+00:00

MOROCCO April 2018 Trip Report. This years first outing to Morocco was a real mixed bag! We had Rain, Sleet, Snow and occasional winds to contend with.   More importantly though, we had a great bunch of bikers who had the guts and determination to push past those first 4 days and reach the 34 degrees of the Sahara! Outskirts of Madrid! After we all met up at the ferry terminal in Plymouth, we boarded the ferry that would gently carry us from good old Britain to the northern port town of Santander in Spain.   Once aboard the hulking [...]

Mark’s Trip Report: Harz Mountains, Dambusters, Colditz, Nurburgring and Vosges Mountains

2018-05-31T17:32:45+00:00

The Magellan Harz Mountains Tour of 2018 began on a damp morning at the end of April with five clients from all over the UK met at Stop24 Services outside Folkestone... We went quickly across the tunnel and onto the fast roads of France and Belgium with a marked improvement in the weather: making for happy faces at the first coffee stop! We started by visiting  the dams made famous by the RAF Dambusters who were in the area 75 years earlier during the Second World War: the Harz Mountains, the Black forest, the Vosges Mountains and all points in [...]

Toby’s Picos report.

2018-10-16T13:58:33+00:00

Santander to Llanes, After an eventful start to the day and negotiating the various obstacles that the port company have in place, it was time to leave the port of Santander and navigated through the crowded streets. Easier said than done with 16 bikes in tow, and innovatively the group got split up, so it was a great opportunity to get to grips with the sat navs. We met at our first coffee stop and get some shade after riding through 25 degrees of glorious sunshine. The it was on to our rerouting point, showing us the way to the [...]

A big tasty motorbike tour: Top breaks for foodies.

2018-05-10T15:02:52+00:00

Let's be honest - if you go on a motorcycle tour, you don't want to spend it all in roadside cafes eating greasy beige food. You want slices of jambon in a sunny plaza washed down with ice cold white wine, straight-from-the-grill sardines at sunset by the beach  and slow-roasted, almond-stuffed lamb in an atmospheric souk. At Magellan we aren't just a 'boys club'  focused on long days and fast paces: We value the journey. This means we put a focus on taking your time if you want to, shorter riding days, free time to explore the culture of the [...]
