Allroad Tour was ridden in the northernmost parts of Finland. Some of the participating teams rode all the way up North to see the Arctic Ocean. Routing was spiced up with a routing competition which included almost 9000 kilometres of ready-made routes to be combined. In addition to riding the smallest gravel roads the bikes and the bikers had to endure both asphalt liaisons and a total offroad route in the end of the tour.

Nobody wanted to take the easiest way so the tour become the toughest one compared to previous Allroad Tours. There were several engine breakdowns and unfortunately couple of bikers got injured too. Still Allroad Tour spirit was there and the misfortunes just made the teams work together in a best way. Every participant had his share of sweating in exceptionally hot, dry hillsides as well as bites of gnats and mosquitos in swamps. Everyone experienced also how helping hands appeared immediately to lift fallen bike or to help repairing tyre puncture. The joy of creating Allroad Tour together was everywhere even more than ever, and everyone participating Allroad Tour 2004 Nangu has to be thanked for keeping up the spirit!
