World Superbikes at Magny Cours (and Stupendous Roads)
Resurrected due to popular demand! 29 Sept – 3 October 2018 T.B.C.
Our view: This Tour was for many years the traditional end to our on-road season and although late in the year we’ve never had rain at the circuit on race day. You will ride some phenomenal roads – riding beside the Bourgogne canal in the Autumn is a highlight of our year. We’ve been doing this Tour since before starting Bike Normandy (now BN European Tours) and promise you mile after mile of sweeping bends and twisties that you will not forget! The days are longer and riding is not at a leisurely pace so will only suit pillions who enjoy being on the back.
The trip starts in Le Havre and finishes in Dieppe (this is to be confirmed). Breakfast in Honfleur is followed by a 260-mile ride to Sancerre, our base for two nights, where dinner is included on the first evening. We then ride the back roads to Magny Cours on race day where entry to the circuit is also included. (We have heard that the racing is now spread over two days – we would intend to go to the circuit on the Sunday for the second race).
Day three we experience the most fabulous roads in the Morvan region, passing through the vineyards and alongside the canals of Bourgogne to our hotel in the centre of Dijon – this day’s riding will be “mustard”!
The fantastic roads continue on the next day as we head off through rolling hills and forests to the Champagne capital of Reims. Our late afternoon arrival gives us time to sample the local “brew” in one of the famous Caves before dinner which is included on our final evening.
On day five we leave the vineyards behind and head back to the coast, still on great, traffic free roads through the French countryside.
This tour will be run at a moderate/brisk pace and as we use a tried & tested “drop-off” marker system with a tail-end rider there is no need for you to refer to road books or maps.
Please contact us for more details – remember there are limited places on this motorbike holiday and with it being run at a moderate / brisk pace it will only suit experienced riders and pillions who are happy to be on the back seat – rather than sightseeing.
