Imagine a mixture of Black Forest, Eifel, Sauerland and Harz, then you have an idea how varied the Cevennes are. Only much more extensive, partly higher and above all: warmer... Travel time from March to the end of October is possible in many years.

The Cevenne mountain range
the unknown motorcycle paradise in the south of France. Imagine a mixture of Black Forest, Eifel, Sauerland, and Harz, then you have an idea of how varied the Cevennes are. Only much more extensive, partly higher, and above all: warmer... Travel time from March to the end of October is good in many years, in July-August, you should not ride there. Sometimes it seems to me that all French people are there at the same time. Moreover, often 30° and more with little wind. In the Alps, you can escape to the mountains and have up to 15° less than in the valley...
The Cevennes offer pure riding fun without overwhelming you, they are good to ride even for beginners. Full of curves, hardly a road with 500m straight, scenically a pleasure. The Cevennes are not as rough as the Alps, there are beautiful gorges to see, also mountains like the Mont Aigoual with its great approach through chestnut forests, or the Mont Lozère. Highlights are the Gorges du Tarn, de l'Ardèche, Chassezac, Cèze with the waterfalls... etc. On 5 day trips we explore the area and stand speechless in front of some natural monuments like the Cirque de Navacelles e.g. I already rode there in the late 80s when I had my second home nearby. We ride only asphalt roads, it is manageable with any motorcycle. In the beautiful **Hotel "Le Carmel" (with pool) you meet the culture of the Carmelites, in the garden restaurant French cuisine is served.
You will arrive individually on Sundays at the base hotel, located in the Cevennes.
You will stay in the lovely decorated rooms of an old Carmelite monastery.
From Monday to Friday, we ride tours in the area every day.
Excursions to the Gorges du Tarn, Ardeche, Herault, Altier, and the Vis and to the waterfalls of the Ceze and much more.
On Saturday you start your individual journey home.
What will inspire you:
Generally, the groups are small, behind the tour guide there are five, in exceptional cases six motorcycles. The maximum group size is eight persons, e.g. four motorcycles with riders and pillion passengers.
Equal riding level
The riding ability of the riders within the group is about the same, so you will not be over-challenged as a beginner and under-challenged as an expert. Your riding ability will be checked after registration and the groups are offered at different levels.
The guide speaks fluent French and has been riding in the region for ages.
