NEW! Eleven day Holiday on some of the best roads in France!

Come with us on this ELEVEN day holiday and ride some of the best roads you will ever experience in your life!

With LOW daily mileage this tour allows plenty of time to drink in the scenery and enjoy each of the destinations we will be stopping at.

Heading south from Calais we will take the back roads to Matougues for our first overnight stop, with a 3 course dinner included to give people a chance to get to know each other. From there we will ride less than 200 miles a day on cross country routes to our second stop at Besançon, and via the Jura mountains and Bauges Massif national park to Valmorel, again enjoying 3 course dinners together.

From here we are treated to fantastic roads through the French Alps via the Cols (mountain passes) onto the N85 better known to motorcyclists as a classic biking road - the Route Napoleon. In the past we have had clients who have enjoyed the N85 so much that they go back and do it again the next day!  We stay for three nights in Castellane, including dinner on the first and last nights. From here you can come with us to explore the mighty and vertiginous Gorges du Verdon. Ride the left bank, bridge over the Gorge then a brilliant ride back to Castellane following the right bank of the gorge, with a stop for lunch at Moustiers. Perfect day! We will also provide a ride out loop into the stunning Maritime Alps, or you can ride down the N85 to Cannes (another great riding experience) orto St Tropez through pine scented backroads to see the rich and famous at play, then continue along the coast to Nice and Monte Carlo. It's a playground and your motorcycle is the perfect machine on which to explore all the best that the South of France has to offer!

And that's just for starters... Now we return via the Route des Grandes Alpes. For many years we have banged on about how good the Route des Grandes Alpes is for biking. Well now it's YOUR turn to find out. Again, no more than 200 miles a day ensures we have time to stop and smell the coffee as we take a full 2 days to get back to Dijon via another stay in Valmorel. From here we will take a different route via a night in Reims (including an end of tour dinner) back to Calais and the ferry home. A little over 2000 miles in France, the majority of it in the mountains, plus of course the Gorge Verdon!

And yes, it really is that good. You want a motorcycle riding holiday? Well this is it!
