With sand-covered tombs, austere pyramids and towering Pharaonic temples, Egypt brings out the explorer in all of us. Egypt is rich with temples, soaring lotus-bud columns; enormous stone portals laced with delicate carvings, elaborate underground tombs, windswept desert monasteries, and richly decorated mosques. But as extraordinary as these sights are, they will probably not be the things that linger in your memory after you return home. It is exploring them from the back of a motorcycle or a scooter – from the Mediterranean feel of Alexandria to the electric pace of Cairo to the timelessness of desert villages- that is unforgettable.

Cross Egypt Challenge adventure rally and motorcycle and scooter tour not only gives you the opportunity to explore this magnificent country on two wheels, but it also allows you to experience the Egyptian culture first hand and explore destinations and routes that normal tourists don’t get to explore.

An event for those who are up for a Challenge in another country.  Not on Vespas but Sym 150cc.  This is not a VCM organised ride, you need to book your own registration, flights etc. but a few of us are thinking of doing this and there is an Early Bird cut off on the fee, so start planning if you are interested and leave a comment below.

2024 Early Bird Fee is USD 2,650 + the extras below at 2023 prices

    A further update about the Cross Egypt Challenge 2024.
    I have just had a zoom meeting with the Organisers of the Cross Egypt Challenge. They are so impressed that I have recruited a group of 13 participants, they have given me permission to extend the group to 20, and the current discount of US220 off the tour price.
    So, if you had a look but needed more time to work it into your holiday plans for 2024, then here is your chance!
    Don't wait too much longer though. You do need to register and pay the downpayment of US500 a.s.a.p. however, as a requirement for the discount. This will ensure you get both the Early Bird registration price and the discount. Win/Win.
    If you have ever wanted to see Egypt then this is the only way to do it. 🙂 There is so much more packed into this trip than just the riding, and it is all done in the safest and fun way, with like minded people.
    Please read, Cross Egypt Challenge info, register (mentioning my name in the notes), and pay, Let me know when you have done all of this, so I can add you to the check list. 🙂
    What an adventure this is going to be. 🙂

    If anyone else in very keen to learn more about this trip with the intention of joining us, please let me know as we're having an online information meeting this Thursday 3 Aug at 8pm and I will send you the link. 




    Further update:

    In the registration form, you will be required to upload a colored copy of your passport and International Drivers Licence.  As the IDL only covers 1 year, you don't have to do this now, it can be loaded next year closer to the event, when the organisers ask for it.

    The organisers have offered only our group this discount.  Your name will be added to their special list, once you complete the Registration and make the down payment.  The discount will then be added on full payment next year.

    So far there are 3 definites, with 2 interested.  Please have a look and if it's something you feel is right for you then mark your attendance now.


    I have now secured a great deal for this trip, but we need 12 people attending this amazing experience. laughing

    A downpayment of US500 to be paid by 31 August, 2023 to lock in the price for 2024.

    The Registration is very detailed, you need to have the documents required to upload into it.  I have advised the organisers that the IDL (International Drivers Licence) only lasts for 1 year, so that would have to be uploaded at a later date.  I am waiting on a CODE to enter to identify us.

    Discount is on the Trip ONLY -  (US2,650) New price US2,430 for 12 people 

    Please read about what is included in this offer, it really is a good deal. Airport pickup, accommodation, food/drinks, fuel, scooter maintenance, carry your luggage, t-shirt and 3 x long sleeved t-shirts etc.

    Prices for Scooter Hire, Accommodation Upgrade or Helmet hire remain the same prices.

    The trip will cost between AU $4,620 up to AU $5,000, pending the exchange rate, and only if you include all the add ons. (This does not include your flights).


    Any questions, please contact me a.s.a.p.

    Cheers Julie

    This is by no means an easy ride.  You will need to read all the information before signing up, but by jove it is going to be one amazing experience.

    I am working on a small discount for a group of 10+ so watch this space.
