"This 12 night tour combines something for everyone from some of the best riding roads in France and Northern Spain...."

The terrain varies as we travel south through France from wide open expanses through the wine region of Bourgogne to the engineering spectacle of the Millau Bridge and into Spain with the high mountain peaks of the Pyrenees.

We first ran this tour in 2017 the change this year being that we are running it in reverse. The tour will start with an afternoon crossing to France via Eurotunnel followed by a welcome dinner at our first hotel of the tour just south of Calais. Next day we ride to the Bourgogne region famous for wines, good food and excellent motorcycling roads. We stay here for 2 nights with a ride-out making the most of the roads in the Yonne and Morvan regions.

After a transition night near St. Etienne, we ride to our hotel for the next three nights which has an outdoor swimming pool and is a short walk from the centre of Millau and only 8 miles from the Viaduct. It is also in the Grands Causses Nature Park which feature deep limestone gorges, probably the most well-known being the Tarn Gorge.

There are two ride-outs planned, one will include a visit to the Millau Suspension bridge designed by the English architect Lord Norman Foster and which touches the bottom of the Tarn Valley in only 9 places. We will take you through the Tarn Gorge with the road carved through the valley floor which follows the river and continue into the Cevennes National Park.

We have a fantastic ride to our next hotel crossing from France into Spain through the Pyrenees following the “Route de Cols” with not only great roads but some truly stunning scenery to take in and enjoy on the way. For the next 2 nights we stay in a fully refurbished 17th century Monastery situated on the banks of the river Ara. Our planned ride-out from this location will take in the Southern Pyrenees through beautiful gorges and river valleys.

Staying in Northern Spain we follow the route of the Yesa Reservoir and into the Rioja region, very famous for its wines and scenery where we shall stay in a Parador which was originally a 12th century hospital and retains many original features such as the gothic archways. Our ride-out will take in the National Parks through the Urbasa and Andia mountains.

We have just over 100 miles on our last day as we ride to the port of Santander for an overnight sailing to Portsmouth.
