It began in 2008 when 6 friends went to France for a few days on their bikes. Some of the riding had room for improvement, so one of the guys who has been a Police Class One Advanced Rider for over 20 years, offered a few words of advice. That evening, someone suggested what a great idea it would be to be to have advanced motorcycle training similar to that available in the UK. It has now grown to much much more. We call it the French Training Tour, or FTT for short. Training, routes, accommodation and planning have been honed to what has been described as a fabulous tour.
We offer a series of planned routes over a three or four day weekend, during which time your riding is assessed by four different people. During a break your mentor will go over the ride with you, enabling you to come up with suggestions on how to improve. The mentors will use their years of experience over thousands of miles to provide little gems of wisdom to help you improve your riding. Even if you have ridden on the continent before the FTT has something to offer you. Honest constructive feedback in a relaxed and friendly manner over a cup of coffee mixed with a sense of humour. We follow the principles of Safety, System, Smoothness and Speed in the right places, we are also looking to make you safer and faster.
