A 3-day event that will introduce you to Touraine.
A loop of 700 km of small tourist routes and rolling roads, which will take you closer to the most popular castles but also other less famous but equally remarkable.
We strive to offer you the perfect blend of adventure, accessibility, and a minimum of comfort. You will spend the night in the tent that you carry on your mount, in the bivouac space that we concoct you, with showers and toilets..
Dinner (excluding drinks) and breakfast are provided and included in your registration . Only lunch is at your expense, in order to progress at your own pace and have lunch whenever you like.
A list of good plans along the route will be communicated to you. Of course, alcoholic beverages should be consumed in moderation in order not to spoil these 3 days.
Of course you are not obliged to take part in the bivouac, and can choose to spend the night in The hotel (except package). We will suggest a few.
What motorcycles and what level?
La Royale is open to all types of trails and "maxi-trails" and at all levels. If you have not yet dared to put your wheels elsewhere than on the bitumen, it is the occasion to make your hand, if you are accustomed to it, then it is a good training and a memory in all Unforgettable case.
There is no need for specific preparation on motorcycles except for tires with teats or crampons. Soft or rigid luggage are adapted, the borrowed paths are wide enough.
We also appreciate sidecars, "classics" and other old grannies always ready for the adventure !
2 plots are proposed :
- the "Extreme" course for the sharpest
- the "Adventure" course to discover the "off-road", which will also make you take paths but without technical difficulties.
One week before departure, we will send you GPS track of the hike (in gpx, trb, and pdf).
If you do not have GPS, you can rent (when registering) a GPS / Tripy II electronic roadbook reader.
The advantage of GPS is that you do not have to follow our circuit, and if you deviate from it, it will put you back on the right track. The important thing is to meet in the evening at the bivouac !
The route takes place on open road, by registering with La Royale you agree to respect the Highway Code.

If the event had to be canceled due to the health crisis, you would have the choice between full reimbursement or postponement of your commitment. For any other cancellation conditions, consult the Event Rules.
