Spyder Club Motorcycle Tour: French Alps and Provence
We love this trip, our 2015 and 2016 visits to the Alps and Provence were simply stunning! So it has been requested yet again and Spyder Club are returning to the chalet south of Briancon, France to once again enjoy this beautiful region and the amazing scenery and breathtaking roads.
The trip includes some of the most famous motorycling roads around: the Route Napoleon, Col du Galibier and de la Bonette and many other routes that have become firm favourites at Spyder Club.
Based in a fantastic, self catering chalet this trip is more cost effective than some of our hotel trips but still provides comfortable accommodation in picturesque surroundings.
Trip testimonial, Hubert, a member and trip guests since 2011: ‘Just a note to say a huge thank you for a fantastic trip to the Alps, it has been the pinnacle Spyder Club trip to date. You are both great and delightful hosts and your attention to detail made for a super relaxing and enjoyable time away. I am looking forward to booking the next trip and already have my eyes on Spain in March!’
