Du vendredi 4 au mardi 8 septembre 2015, s’est déroulée avec succès la première rencontre organisée par le tout nouveau Moto Club Ulysses France à la Chapelle d’Abondance en Haute Savoie.

Ce club international qui compte plus de 36000 membres de par le monde et qui a sa maison mère en Australie n’avait en effet pas de représentation en France.
C’est à l’initiative de John Cooke, déjà membre des Ulysses anglais et habitant de la vallée d’Abondance que ce manque a été comblé et certains membres de la SAMVA (Sympathique Association des Motards de la Vallée d’Abondance) âgés de plus de 40 ans (car c’est la première condition pour faire partie des Ulysses.) se sont joints à lui pour créer la branche française dont le président Olivier Chouette dit Enzo.

Ce baptême a eu lieu sous un soleil timide et avec des températures plutôt fraiches le matin mais eu un franc succès.
En effet nous avons été étonnés que notre premier événement ait attiré une centaine de motards de l'Australie, l'Angleterre, la Suisse, l'Allemagne, la Norvège et les Etats-Unis.
Comme on pouvait s’y attendre, ces journées se sont surtout passées sur les motos car chaque jour 3 balades de différentes longueurs et difficultés avaient été organisées dans tout le Chablais, les Savoie, la Suisse et l’Italie voisines. Les balades du dimanche ont toutes convergées sur la station de ski à proximité de Praz de Lys où Phillipe Adam directeur de l'Office de Tourisme de La Chapelle d'Abondance en collaboration avec l'office du tourisme de Pras de Lys avaient organisé un magnifique barbecue. En soirée, les motards se retrouvaient dans la salle à manger de l'hôtel Le Carlina à La Ville du Nant pour profiter d'un repas convivial, partager les histoires de la journée et prévoir les balades du lendemain.

C’est avec un réel plaisir que tous ces motards matures et responsables ont avalé des cols et des épingles et ont pu admirer les magnifiques paysages alpins, que plusieurs d’entre eux ne connaissaient pas.
Les Ulysses sont repartis mardi matin pour les derniers, avec des promesses de se retrouver rapidement ici ou ailleurs,
L’Ulysses Club français invite vivement tout ceux qui seraient intéressés pour se joindre à nous de se rendre sur notre site www.ulysses-club.fr
