About this region
Occitanie (French pronunciation: [ɔksitani] (listen); Occitan: Occitània [utsiˈtanjɔ]; Catalan: Occitània [uksiˈtaniə]), Occitany or Occitania (), is the southernmost administrative region of metropolitan France excluding Corsica, created on 1 January 2016 from the former regions of Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrénées. The Council of State approved Occitanie as the new name of the region on 28 September 2016, coming into effect on 30 September 2016.The modern administrative region is named after the larger cultural and historical region of Occitania, which corresponds with the southern third of France. The region Occitanie as it is today covers a territory similar to that ruled by the Counts of Toulouse in the 12th and 13th centuries. The banner of arms of the Counts of Toulouse, known colloquially as the Occitan cross, is used by the modern region and is also a popular cultural symbol. In 2015, Occitanie had a population of 5,839,867.

About this route collection
The Drôme is a beautiful area to ride, with its medium-high mountains, canyons, cols, hairpin bends, fantastic views and also excellent asphalt roads, the Drôme is a dream destination for motorcyclists and nature lovers. From Chalancon, the neighboring departments such as the Hautes Alpes, Alpes Hautes Provence and the Ardèche are also within easy driving distance, making the number of highlights to be reached seem almost inexhaustible. Destinations such as Mont Ventoux, Col de la Bonette, Galibier, Alpe d'Huez, Combe Laval, Lac de Serres Poncon and Vallon Pont d'Arc are a few of them. The start and end points of these routes are all at a great motorcycle hotel just outside Chalancon at Col de Chamauche.

View route collection 7 day roundtrip from Girona to Catalonia Andorra and the Pyrenees
About this route collection
The Pyrenees stretch for more than 450 kilometers from the Bay of Biscay in the west to the Cap de Creus on the Mediterranean. The mountain range, with peaks of more than 3000 meters, forms a natural barrier that separates the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of Europe. The main ridge of the mountain range also largely forms the state border between France and Spain, while the miniature state of Andorra lies between these two countries.

Bordering the Pyrenees is Catalonia, the hinterland of Barcelona. No wonder many new models of motorcycles are being introduced to the press in Catalonia. There are many ways to put the new models to the test there. An additional advantage is that it is very quiet! You would almost say 'too quiet' because there is a danger that you will use the entire width of the road at some point, under the guise of 'you won't see oncoming traffic here' .... But let's keep it safe and stay on the right side of the center line.

These seven routes of this collection run through these beautiful areas. These are all routes where especially the sides of the tires have to endure a lot. Whether on the gentle slopes in Catalonia or on the balcony roads in the Gorges in the French Pyrenees, make sure they are on tension, because you can bet it will be exciting!

A few attractions are discussed per route in the review. These often tell something about the history of the area in which you are driving. Fun facts, quite educational. There are also indicated places where you can refuel and where you can drink coffee and / or have lunch. You are completely free to visit these places, you can of course also determine your own interesting points.
But the most important thing you've probably traveled to this area for is simply driving. And as mentioned above, you are in a true motorcycle paradise where the steering is fantastic!

Each route ends at a hotel. It is of course not an obligation to use these hotels, you can always look for another place to stay in the area, that decision is yours. However, my experience is that they are all simple but good hotels for a very reasonable price. They are known and can be booked at booking.com.

The routes of these collections:

R01 - Girona to Sant Julia de Loria, 269km
R02 - Sant Julia de Loria to Pierrefitte Nestalas, 290km
R03 - Pierrefitte Nestalas to Barbastro, 291km
R04 - Barbastro to Puig Reig, 266km
R05 - Puig Reig to Figueres, 268km
R06 - Figueres to Quillan, 243km
R07 - Quillan to Gironam, 286km

Have fun riding these routes!

View route collection 4 great tours in Aubrac and Cantal
About this route collection
These tours leave from the holiday home in Labesserette in the Aubrac.
The Aubrac is an area in the Massif Central in France with volcanic granite plateaus between the valley of the Truyère in the west, north and north-east and the valley of the Lot in the south. Aubrac is located in the departments of Lozère, Cantal and Aveyron.
It is a hilly area. A place where sight is lost ... A thousand year old passage on the road to St-Jacques de Compostelle. This separate entity, with a very strong identity, became the Aubrac Regional Nature Park in 2018. An essential basis for the future of this very special area.
With its ocher-colored coat, its large lyre-shaped horns that float to the sky and its eyes that appear to be made of kohl, the Aubrac cow is instantly recognizable. Known for its beauty but also for its robustness, it is the symbol of the plateau.
Far away from the busy tourism you can fully enjoy the tranquility here.

The untouched nature reserve of the Cantal Mountains is one of the five areas that make up the Auvergne Volcanic Regional Nature Park. In fact, they are the remains of one large stratovolcano, the largest in Europe, which is still visible on the surface.
The Cantal Mountains are an extraordinary area. It is a sparsely populated region with extensive meadows. Numerous rivers find their way to eventually flow into one of the many lakes.
The Puy Mary is one of the highest mountains in the Cantal Mountains in the Massif Central. The top is located at an altitude of 1783 meters. The summit is accessible from Pas de Peyrol, the highest mountain pass in the Massif Central.

View route collection 24 Magnificent routes in France
About this route collection
That France is one of the most beautiful and best touring countries is beyond doubt. It offers an incredibly varied landscape with good roads and a pleasant climate. It is not for nothing that you see so many motorcyclists there. My previous collection of 25 routes in France (25 Magnificent routes in France) were based on the route descriptions from the Motorbike Guide France part 1 made by Bert Loorbach.

This collection of 24 routes comes from Motortourgids France part 2. With this collection a difference has been made between approach routes and motorcycle tours in a certain area. The approach routes can also be used in combination with the routes from Motortourgids France part 1

The routes are sometimes slightly adjusted based on the tips that Bert Loorbach gives in his description, or because of a different place to spend the night, or to achieve the minimum length of 2 hours for the MRA Library. For each route there is a more detailed description in the review, including options for accommodation or places of interest along the way, which are also indicated with a POI and, if possible, with a short description.

Two or more routes have been made for a number of areas, such as Burgundy, Auvergne, The Alps, Tarn and Cévennen and Nord-Pas de Calais. These routes can be nicely combined in a multi-day trip.

About this route collection
This MRA route collection contains 25 beautiful motorcycle routes in different parts of France, such as the Ardennes, Alsace, Vercors, the Drôme, the Ardèche, Cote d'Azure, Gorges du Verdon, the Ariège, the Dordogne and Brittany.

The routes have been carefully made by Bert Loorbach, who himself is an enthusiastic motorcyclist. He lived in France for a year and a half and during that time he focused on mapping the unknown and beautiful roads of France especially for motorcyclists.

The routes are bundled in the Motortourgids France part 1 of Kosmos publishing house and now also available in MyRouteApp.

I have taken over the routes in MRA and sometimes adjusted something to make them even more interesting for the motorcyclist.
