If you are looking to spend your next motorcycle touring holiday on some of the very best roads in Europe, both over mountains and through valleys and gorges, then this motorbike tour will provide you with everything!
To enjoy motorcycling in the Pyrenees you have to be in them, and that’s exactly where we base ourselves so that we can access the cols in record time - the nearest one being the Col Du Tourmalet. Possibly one of the most famous climbs in all of France, the Col Du Tourmalet is the highest of the French Pyrenean road cols and features frequently on the route of the Tour de France. For the motorcycle rider, the road over the Col du Tourmalet presents two very distinct aspects, the Eastern approach with its early wooded sections and its spectacular open views and the Western side which is much wilder, with deep rocky ravines and reputedly the fastest descent in the whole of France.
There are so many cols on our doorstep it's not possible to ride a motorbike over them all, but we think that we have found the best of them for you to ride in the time we have available. One thing for certain is whichever col you are motorcycling on, you’re sure to hear the clamour of cowbells ringing in your ears!
Onwards to one of our favourite unspoilt areas in the whole of France. A jewel of a Hotel located by the river in an area where traffic is pleasantly absent - a place designed for YOUR riding pleasure! For the ambitious there are no less than six riding routes prepared for you. Or if you prefer head out to Saint Cirque la Popie or Rocamadour - truly two of the most beautifully scenic and picturesque villages in the whole of France. On our last visit we had a great day off the bike all day sampling the local Cajarc wines in the Musee de Vin (see photo). Lots to see and do and some very fond memories of an exceptionally pretty rural location - and a fabulous newly refurbished three star Hotel with it's own swimming pool.
Ride the Pyrenees and Lot Valley to turn your biking dreams into reality – this is one holiday you will never forget!
This tour will suit those who love twisty roads - please book early to secure your place.
