Chadaina 2022 - First details become known

Dear Chadains
As promised, you hereby receive an update just before Christmas. It is a special Christmas in a special year and we are all certainly glad when this 2020 finally comes to an end. We hope you are all fit and well and have come to terms with the restrictions to some extent. 2021 Chadaina we have already postponed to 2022. This is a good thing, because otherwise we would already be in the middle of the final registration and that would certainly be inappropriate in view of the existing restrictions.

For this 2022 Chadaina we have already given you some advance notice. Here are finally details about it:
We'll be staying in a different place each night, yet always going without luggage? Well, the solution to this little riddle is simple: Our hotel will follow us during the day and wait for us again at the next place. This works because our hotel is a floating hotel: we will stay on a ship!

Where. Our trip starts in Opatija in Croatia. There, our two ships will be waiting for us and we will then travel around this great country for 7 days, arriving at a different port every day. The end point is again in Opatija.
When. Chadaina 2022 will take place from 03.09. - 10.09.2022.

Yes, the Chadaina goes on cruise but not without extensive and interesting motorcycle tours. Fantastic views from mountain tops and the approached islands of Krk, Rab and Pag, the historic Zadar and its fantastic hinterland and as a further highlight the Istrian peninsula with winding knee-grinder roads as well as narrow and lonely side roads. With tour lengths ranging from 160 to almost 300 km to hidden villages and beaches, there is something for everyone. And for those who want to spend a day on board, the next day a cab will take you to your Töff at the last port. Our motorcycles are always parked at the port, not on the ship.

The organization of such a special Chadaina is quite demanding. We were able to negotiate a good deal with the shipping companies, which otherwise offer such trips as individual packages at much higher prices (1'899 €). Our price will be between €800 and €900. It will be a 7-day Chadaina and the price is half-board, so it includes 7 dinners.
There will be 30 passengers per ship. We have pre-booked 2 ships, so the Chadaina is designed for 60 people.

With this Chadaina we are entering new territory. Therefore we depend on your early feedback. Please write to us in response to this newsletter! Are you interested? Can you imagine such an early, definite registration?
In mid-January, we from the OC will have our next meeting and will then discuss and determine the details. All feedback we get from you until then, we will include in our planning, so write!
After that we will start with the definite registration already in spring 2021. We have to definitely pre-book and pay for the ships already at the end of February 2021! And also this time: first-come-first-served!

We are very excited about your reactions. Until then, we wish you a peaceful holiday, give this 2020 on New Year's Eve the kick up the ass it deserves and look forward to better conditions in the course of 2021 and at the latest in 2022.
Kind regards
Johannes, Denis and Ralph

What is «chadaina» and who are we

«chadaina»

«chadaina» is Rhaeto-Romanic and means «chain». No worries, though - bikes with belt- or kardan-transmission are welcome, too!

The idea

Our idea is simple: to spend a week of joint motorbiking with other gay motorbikers every other year. We take care of accomodation (middle-class standard), provide planned tours and other activities, and we facilitate experienced tour guides. We would like to provide you with a platform on which you can enjoy our tours with friends or make news friends.

The concept

In a seven day period we discover 2 - 3 regions in the Alps. On relocation days participants form small groups to ride to the next destination. Every group is accompanied by an experienced tour guide. Day-trips and other activities are offered on the remaining days. All tours are well-planned in advance and provided to the tour guides. However, we believe that leaving it to each group to decide on details such as pauses and food according to their specific needs and preferences. Furthermore, tour guides are free to modify a planned tour as requested and agreed upon by the group.

The organisers

We are men (and a dog) from Switzerland and from Germany. To facilitate the organisation of «chadaina», we have founded the club Spitzkerle.ch. During «chadaina» we are supported by experienced tour guides. We are all volunteers, and we do not pursue financial interests with «chadaina». For us, the joint fun and shared experiences are at the heart of what we strive to accomplish.
