DmD 2024 - Tours

The 3 routes of the DmD 2024 run between Madrid and Guadalajara. It is a mixture of imperial cities such as Aranjuez and Chinchón in Madrid (Tour A), modest villages of black architecture in the beautiful Sierra del Ocejón in Guadalajara (Tour B) or a route full of castles through La Alcarria and the Lavender fields of Brihuega to Sigüenza (Tour C).

You just have to choose the order. When making your choice, please note that there is only space for 20 motorbikes per tour and day on tours A, B and C.

This year the City Council of Alcalá de Henares offers us a free guided walking tour, which becomes our Tour D. If you are interested, please select tour D, either in English or Spanish, in the registration form
