Midlands-based RMT Motorcycle Training is organising a continental trip this September that offers the perfect blend of riding, socialising, advanced training and sight-seeing.

The five-day excursion to Normandy is a package deal that includes ferry crossings, meals and accommodation for up to 25 people, together with as much or as little continental training as riders want from a small team of highly qualified instructors.

RMT Director, Simon Hayes, explains; “We take on overnight ferry from Portsmouth to Caen, head for an English-owned rustic chateau in Brix, Normandy and ride some of the best roads in lovely countryside for three days. Our five instructors are all DSA-approved, fully qualified as Senior IAM Observers and RoSPA Gold holders - and passionate bikers. Each individual rider decides day-by-day how much he or she takes advantage of their knowledge, but we like to incorporate advanced riding techniques, tips on group riding dynamics and of course, how to ride on the ‘wrong side’ of the road! Individuals can take time out to do their own thing, but we aim to offer a nice balance of touring, learning and socialising“. 

The trip runs from Thursday 6th until Monday 10th September and costs £650 per person, pillions are also very welcome. Routes and radios are provided, but guests cover their own fuel, lunch stops and souvenirs. RMT can also help with a comprehensive checklist to highlight the useful kit and necessary requirements for riding in France.

Every rider gets a Development Report when they return home and may even have the bonus of being awarded the DSA Enhanced Rider Scheme Certificate of Achievement if there riding is to a high enough standard.

A second, 9-day tour to Portugal has been organised for mid October at a cost of £990 per person.
