April to October

From Calais you will ride cross-country making your way through the rolling countryside that is northern France to your base in rural Normandy, here your hosts will treat you to a traditional meal with drinks and you can pick their brains about what rideouts to take over the next few days.

On the evenings where dinner is not included at base, your hosts will be more than happy to take you to the local town to sample some of the divine regional cuisine and enjoy a few glasses of wine without having to worry about the ride back each evening!

Norway is often the trip people are most suprised by. Just how dramatic the scenery and empty the roads are. Come and join me in August and experience a beautiful country with tremendous twisty roads.

Spectacular Normandy

For the next three days you can choose out of an amazing array of planned rideouts that include: William the conqueror’s castle at Falaise, the La Roche cliff face, the Bayeux tapestry, the WW2 beaches, St Cenerei le Gerei (the prettiest town in France), Chateau de Carrouges, Mont St Michel and the medieval town of Domfront.

The beauty of this trip is you have complete control over where you go, they are all incredible places to visit whether that’s because of the history or because of the beautiful riding roads and scenery. You are guaranteed to have a wonderful time whatever you decide.

France Normandy
'Another terrific trip, I thought last year’s would take some beating but this year’s in France was truly one to remember. The day to day riding was excellent as always and everything was taken care of to a tee.'
Grace B

William the conqueror’s castle at Falaise: This castle is exceptionally beautiful and you can discover the history  by taking a walking tour round the castle and looking at the replica furnishings. You can even experience the castle as it was in the past in 3D.

Chateau Carrouges: The Chateau Carrouges dates from the 14th century and combines the features of a military fortress and a peaceful place of residence. It was sold to the French state in 1944 and restored as a tourist site.

St Ceneri le Gerei: The prettiest town in France no less. It has a picturesque medieval chapel and is surrounded by meadows of wildflowers. It’s so beautiful that it has attracted hordes of artists throughout the ages.

Mont St Michel: An Island and commune off the coast of Normandy, where 44 people live permanently. It has the monastery of St Michel on its peak, which is where it takes its name from. It can be reached by foot at low tide.
