Motorbike touring in France

Our top tips on riding in France including motoring rules and regulations as well as French motoring laws and more.

All of our French ports are close to fast roads, allowing you to head your bike in whatever direction you choose with the minimum of fuss. If you have a specific destination in mind (perhaps in the south of the country) and you want to get there as soon as possible, then obviously the main (and frequently toll-charging) motorways are your best bet for opening up the throttle on your bike. If you're not in such a big hurry you'll find that a lot of these major roads have lesser-graded routes running roughly parallel with them. The advantage here is that these, apart from being free of charge, are usually much less busy. And in many respects a whole lot more interesting for bikers.
