Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the freedom and excitement that only a motorbike trip can offer. If you’re a two-wheeled lover, there’s no better time to plan a holiday where you can combine your passion for motorbikes with exploring new destinations.
In this article, we’ll show you how to enjoy a summer holiday in biker style.
Plan your route
Before embarking on any motorcycling trip, it is essential that you plan your route carefully. Do your research on the roads you’ll be travelling on and make sure you include destinations that appeal to motorcyclists, such as scenic routes, nature parks or areas with exciting bends. It is also important to consider the length of your daily stages and the availability of accommodation at each stop.
Equip yourself properly
Safety is paramount when travelling by motorbike, so make sure you have the right equipment. A good helmet, gloves, windproof jacket, motorbike boots and protective trousers are essential items. Also, consider carrying a rucksack or saddlebags to store your belongings and make sure you have enough space to carry water, sunscreen and some food.
Explore biker destinations
Summer offers a wealth of biker events and rallies around the world. Look for destinations that host motorbike rallies or festivals during your holiday and join in the fun. These events will allow you to meet other motorbike enthusiasts, share experiences and enjoy an atmosphere full of passion for two wheels.
Enjoy the great outdoors
One of the greatest pleasures of travelling by motorbike is the opportunity to be in direct contact with nature. Take advantage of your summer holidays to explore national parks, mountains, beaches and other breathtaking landscapes. The feeling of freedom of riding on scenic roads surrounded by beautiful natural surroundings is incomparable.
Savour the local cuisine
Part of the experience of travelling by motorbike is enjoying the local cuisine at each destination. Stop off in small villages or quaint towns and sample the local dishes. Discover authentic restaurants, charming cafes and iconic places where bikers congregate to share stories of adventures on the road.
Make strategic stops
During your motorbike trips, it’s important to make strategic stops to rest and stretch your legs. Take the opportunity to visit places of interest along the way, such as historical monuments, viewpoints or tourist attractions. These breaks will allow you to relax, enjoy new places and recharge your batteries before continuing your journey.
Biker clothing for summer
Biker clothing for summer is focused on providing maximum protection and comfort for riders as they brave the high temperatures. Here are some recommendations on appropriate clothing for bikers this season:
Helmet: The helmet is the most important element of a biker’s clothing, regardless of the season. Be sure to wear an approved helmet that provides adequate ventilation to keep your head cool.
Summer biker jacket: Opt for jackets designed specifically for summer, which are made of breathable and lightweight materials, such as mesh or perforated textiles. These jackets allow good air circulation while providing some protection against wind and possible scratches in the event of a fall.
Gloves: Wear gloves with ventilation or made of lightweight materials to protect your hands without retaining too much heat. At Corbeto’s you will find several models of waterproof leather gloves, with a patented ergonomic and anti-fatigue design that respects the natural curvature of the hand.
T-shirts: You can wear short-sleeved or long-sleeved technical t-shirts, designed to wick away sweat and keep your body cool. For shorter rides, biker shirts complemented by a leather waistcoat will be ideal.
Trousers: Opt for summer biker trousers made from breathable materials and with protection in key areas such as knees and hips. For short trips, a pair of jeans will be perfect to keep you comfortable on two wheels.
Footwear: Wear robust boots or shoes that cover your ankles to protect your feet, such as biker boots.

From long journeys to short trips, beyond the final destination, the real pleasure of a motorbike holiday lies in the journey itself.
