Motorcycle road trip France

Hilly Roads of Central France


Alexis, Travel designer

Our Tour Leaders Manager loves to go out on the road and refine the tracks of our itineraries - always with a smile!

You can choose from two itineraries every day, depending on what you fancy doing: one is longer if you want to make the most of the road, the other is shorter if you want to take your time and visit places on the way. A Road Trip Coordinator will be on hand during this trip. He will transport your luggage and be available with a replacement motorcycle in case any unforeseen incidents occur. In the evening, you’ll meet back up with the rest of the group to share your stories from the day. All of our motorcycles have custom saddles, guaranteeing a comfortable ride.

D1 / Lyon - Livradrois-Forez Nature Park - 105 miles

Meet and greet in the centre of Lyon at 10 am, at BAAK, a workshop that creates exceptional motorbikes. We set off at around 11 am. Holiday mode ON! We head towards Livradois-Forez Natural Park. You can have a lunch at a “jasserie” farm, visit the “Fourme de Montbrison” dairy, discover the famous paper mill.

D2 / Livradrois-Forez Nature Park - Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park - 105/140 miles

There are several possible routes to complete today’s mission: visit the best-known places in the region, such as St-Nectaire and Mont-Dore. Whichever route you choose, you’ll love riding on little-known tracks between medieval villages.

D3 / A day riding around Millevaches Nature Park - 137 miles

From the shores of Lake Siauve, you head towards Plateau de Millevaches and the geological wonder, the Bort Columns (Orgues de Bort), in the middle of the Corrèze region. It’s one of the best vantage points to admire the landscapes of Auvergne.

D4 / Auvergne Volcanoes Natural Park - Aubrac Regional Natural Park - 96 or 162 miles

Today, we cross the villages Murat, Chaudes Aigues, Saint Flour and Laguiole. We ride close to Puy Mary, the largest volcano in Europe, measuring 1,678 miles2 with a diameter of 43 miles. Our routes pass through several villages considered among the most beautiful in France.

D5 / Aubrac Regional Nature Park - Monts d’Ardèche Nature Park - 87 or 149 miles

The medieval city Le Puy-en-Velay is a hidden gem: you can’t very well wander around its well-preserved 86-acre old quarter without visiting the Cathedral and Hôtel-Dieu, both listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites.

D6 / Monts d’Ardèche Nature Park - Pilat Regional Nature Park - Lyon - 81 miles or 155 miles

If you are strapped for time and plan on getting back to Lyon early, we recommend that you take the shorter 3-hour route. But if you want to make the most of the day, you should go and discover the Pilat Regional Nature Park.
