So you want to ride your motorcycle as it should be ridden - on twisty roads, through great scenery. Throw in some great hotels and fantastic food and you have got the perfect long weekend. This is a motorcycling weekend, there will be not be much sightseeing and you will be on the bike for six hours per day. Whether you are an experienced motorcyclist or new to the game we will help you gain confidence and perfect your techniques on the twisty roads. Accompanied by a professional guide who will be on-hand to give advice (should you want it) this is the ideal introduction to riding mountain roads.
DAY 1: Calais to Alsace-Lorraine (270 miles).
Our usual Folkestone - Calais Euro tunnel crossing and then 96 miles on the motorway to get us quickly out of Northern France. A bite to eat for lunch and then onto a National road that will enable us to acclimatise to continental driving. The roads will get progressively twistier as we head towards Verdun. A stop off at Verdun is a must before heading onto our hotel on the banks of the Moselle River.
DAY 2: A Day in the Mountains (200 miles approx).
Twisty roads, stunning scenery, more twisty roads. We will travel through the heart of the Vosges - past Rocher de Dabo, along the Route des Cretes, over le Hohneck and Le Grand Ballon (4,600ft). We guarantee that you will have be grinning from ear to ear by the end of the day.
DAY 3: Mulhouse to Epernay (200 miles approx).
More twisty roads and stunning scenery. Today we will be climbing to a height of 4,000ft before heading out of the mountains and into the fertile Champagne region. We will overnight in the beautiful town of Epernay - home to the most famous Champagne houses.
DAY 4: Epernay to Calais (185 miles approx).
