Weather is changing depending on the season and you should prepare for almost any type of weather. 

ITEMS OF DAILY USE

Personal items are recommended such as sunscreen, lip balm, antiseptic cream, anti-diarrhea medicine, and broad-spectrum antibiotics (participants must contact their doctor). Given that temperatures can range greatly depending on the altitude, long-sleeve clothes, a wool sweater, and a jacket are recommended in addition to sunglasses and a sun hat.

ROAD CONDITIONS

This tour has been designed to show participants the very best that France has to offer in a short period of time. This includes some of the best motorcycle riding in Europe in varying altitudes and types of road conditions. The trip is mostly paved, with just a few sections on hard-packed gravel.

SAFETY ISSUES

France is considered a safe place with friendly inhabitants; however, it is recommended that participants are aware of their surroundings and guard their valuables. Exploring areas in pairs or as a group is advisable to avoid unforeseen dangers.
