Motorcycle Tour France:

History, culture, gastronomy, wine, sporting event…you’ll get it all on this motorcycle tour covering some of the most spectacular regions of France.

We’ll depart from Grenoble and ride through Auvergne, a region filled with volcanoes (thankfully extinct) and Perigord, known for its gastronomy.

We’ll arrive in Tours in the heart of the Loire Valley, from there we’ll visit a number of chateaux.

History and architecture

First chateau on our list is Chenonceau.   Perhaps the most iconic of them all.  It resembles a bridge spanning the Cher river. The history is as fascinating as the architecture is stunning.  Next we’ll spend a few nights in Tours, a small charming city.  The regional specialities and local wines are top notch.

Another chateau on our to-do-list is Amboise.  It is particularly interesting in that it is completely surrounded by the town.  It overlooks the Loire river. A small residence that Leonard Da Vinci lived in is on the grounds. The gardens contain reproduction scale models based on his sketches.  You will see just how far ahead of his time he was.

Not far away is the Chateau de Villandry (pictured above).  Its gardens are considered to be among the most beautiful anywhere.


Mont Saint Michel & Normandy Beaches

We’ll shoot up to Normandy & Brittany via Saint Malo, a haven for privateers and pirates long ago.  We’ll end our day at Mont Saint Michel.  After visiting the monastery of the Mont Saint Michel we’ll head to the Normandy Beaches.  We’ll visit the memorial and cemetery to pay our respects to all those who gave their lives during the invasion of World War II.

24 hours of Le Mans

The zenith of our BMW Motorcycle Tour Le Mans Chateaux de la Loire, is the famous endurance race.  For 24 hours both man and machine face the test of endurance.  Multiple classes of cars battle it out at the same time.  There’s plenty of entertainment to keep you going in the wee hours of the night.

Brilliant white wines

While in the area we’ll visit a winery in the Vouvray region, renowned for brilliant white wines.

Here we’ll see how they produce a delightful sparkling wine using an age-old traditional method.

After tasting, we’re sure you’ll want to take some home with you.

Before thinking about leaving, we’ve got one more chateau to visit.  Chambord.  Perhaps the most dazzling of them all.  You’ll enjoy the majesty for one more time before it’s back to Chartres.

We’ll spend the evening recounting our adventure and marking off numerous items on our bucket lists.

“I was very impressed with the BMW R1200RT we rode on our trip.
Our guides were very knowledgeable and helpful.
The amount of riding per day was perfect, just enough to be satisfied, without being dead tired.
We visited some fabulous wineries and the owners were really nice.
Our group was so much fun that we hope we can all do another together. ”

“I convinced my wife to do the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy tour.
She was reluctant to go at first, but after meeting the group and visiting places
like Mont St. Michel, Stonehenge, & London she was having a great time.
The riding in France, Wales, & England was great.
The racing on the Isle of Man is definitely a bucket-list event.
Any serious motorcyclist should get there at least once.
We had so much fun, the wife said we can go again! Thanks for a great trip M2!”

“I gave this tour as a gift to my husband who always wanted to ride the Alps.
From getting picked up at the airport and dropped off at the end, we had the most amazing trip.
He was really happy riding and talking everything bikes with the guys.
I was happy with the visits, food and hotels, especially the spa at the last one.
The mountain scenery is breathtaking and the M2 team took well care of us. ”
