Here's a Cool Excuse For an International Biker Getaway

The riding world continues to become a smaller place with international motorcycle events offering the perfect excuse for jet-setting biker vacations. Ducati’s Days of Joy is the latest travel temptation.

Anyone who has partied with Italians knows they have a certain flair and style when hosting an event, throw in some motorcycle passion and you have something riders should be tempted by. Conveniently riding back for its second edition, Days of Joy is a Ducati Scrambler Experience with riding courses and fun. This year’s edition will take place on 14 May, 18 June, 23 July and 10 September and take place at the Vairano Country House near Pavia.

It will include Flat Track courses with expert instructors and professional riders, a riding school for novices, customized courses for new women riders and test rides on all the bikes in the Ducati Scrambler range. In addition, there'll be plenty of fun things to do and ways to relax for families and friends with cooking classes, barbecues, a chill area and the eternal promise of ‘lots more’.

An exclusive new entry is the Off-Road School. Riding courses will in fact be organized at the Vairano off-road track with the brand new Scrambler Desert Sled. The off-road track covers approximately 53,000 sq.m and participants will be accompanied in total safety by expert instructors to have a real Enduro Experience with jumps, sliding and drifting.


The four dates of this year's Days of Joy also feature:

Flat Track School: to learn drifting techniques on the off-road track in complete safety on board a Scrambler Sixty2 provided by the organisers, or with your own Scrambler. During this course expert instructors will assist participants in gaining experience on various track surfaces starting from basic off-road riding.

Flat Track Pro School: on board a Scrambler Sixty2 in the morning and the Scrambler Flat Track Pro, customised specifically for such dirt tracks, in the afternoon.

Scrambler Women's Riding School: a brand new course dedicated to women. With the help of expert instructors and a Scrambler Sixty2, 400 cm3, participants can learn to ride a motorcycle even without a riding licence.

Scrambler Test Ride: for all those riders who can't wait to discover the Ducati Scrambler Experience, at the Days of Joy they can try out the bikes of the new Scrambler range assisted by the local Ducati dealers.

Scrambler maintenance course: a professional team of mechanics will be teaching the art of motorcycle maintenance.


We mentioned the Italian signature of style? Once again this year at the Vairano Country House there'll be cookery lessons with Stefano Caffarri of The Silver Spoon, Italy’s most definitive and influential cookbook, first published in 1950. It'll be an authentic cookery class with pots and pans, rolling pins and hotplates, a hands-on lesson with the famous chef.

The Days of Joy will also be a chance to relax and have fun in a natural environment, with an open-air barbecue, a chill area with music, free WiFi, deckchairs and beach umbrellas, table-football and ice-cream.

Bikers already digging out their passports can find more information about costs and enrollment for the Days of Joy online.
