Great French routes for Guided or Self Guided French motorcycle tours

French Motorcycle Tours France

Northern France and the green paysage of Manche, Calvados & Suisse Normande to the glorious green landscapes and winding roads tracing the Loire valley southwards from Angers to Saumur & Chinon. The variety of roads appealing to bikers on both Guided & Self Guide Motorcycle tours is endless.

The French lake district of Limousin to the the Massif Central & Auvergne, with its incredible number of extinct volcanoes around Clermont Ferrand, can give the impression of a landscape from another time.

All around you will find a great deal of pretty countryside and fabulous sites of historic importance and beauty as your ride through these fantastic regions of France.

If you absolutely want to push yourself, the Pyrénées and the Alps both offer mountain roads to ride that will reward bikers with spectacular roads and views.

Here are just a handful of the routes and roads recommended;

D22 – Tinchebray to La Haute-Chapelle in Normandy : A nice twisty route through rural Normandy.

D514 – Caen to Honfleur in Normandy : The coast road running past the D-Day beaches with terrific views and lovely coastal towns.

N138 – Alençon to Le Mans in Western Loire : Some magnificantly long straights, perfect for just opening up the bikes throttle.

N138 – Ecommoy in Western Loire to Tours in Loire Valley : A very pleasant and pacey run through the rolling hills and sweeping bends of the Loire Valley, this route has a little something for every motorcycle rider. Up and down straights, sweepers, good surface and nice environment through the countryside through quaint towns and past poppy fields, and all only 20km from Le Mans.

D749 – Saumur to Lussac-Les-Châteaux in Western Loire : A typicaly great French D route with great road surfaces, fast stretches and great scenery. Hardly any traffic and a good way to bypass Poitiers.

D952 – Angers to Saumur in Western Loire : Great road running beside the river Loire with little traffic and lots of straights with plenty of places to stop.

D944 – Neuvy to Bourges in Loire Valley : Meandering road passing through forests and woods. Great for fun at sensible speeds.

N144 – le Puy-en-Velay to Mende in Limousin : Running across the top of a plateau with generally light traffic. 80mph bends are possible.

N9 – Millau to Lodeve in Limousin : Winding dual carriageway with light traffic. The kind of road you want to ride again and again.
