Self Guided Motorcycle Touring

Self Guided Motorcycle Touring Photographer:Steve Coleman


Fly and Ride




I am the author of two motorcycle touring guidebooks based around my own motorcycle trips and my 20 years working in travel.

You can get DETAILS OF BOTH BOOKS and read about my own motorcycle adventures on this website.


I have been riding motorcycles overseas for 30 years and this combined with my experience of organising adventurous holidays across the globe means that I know exactly what makes for a great motorcycle holiday.

I can offer two types of service for motorcyclists - details below.

Fly Ride pre-booked packages to the USA and AUSTRALIA - includes bike hire.

International flights from all UK airports, choice of bike hire, detailed daily itinerary and pre-booked accommodation all included. I work with you to ensure the bikes, hotels and daily distances are tailored to your timeframe and must see destinations. These pre-booked packages are perfect if you have just a few weeks holiday and prefer to have everything pre-booked and organised, allowing you to just enjoy the ride but providing the assurances of a welcoming hotel and good food at the end of the day.

If you would like me to book your self-ride adventure to either the USA or AUSTRALIA Complete an enquiry form and I will call for a chat.

Tailor-made Self Guided Packs - ideal for groups of friends or couples 

Taking your own bike but need a pre-planned route? Upon request I can put together Information Route Packs, which consist of Daily Itineraries, Suggested Routes, Marked Maps and contact details of hotels en route for you to book directly as you ride. I do not offer a hotel pre-booking service for these tailored routes.

These packs are individual and totally tailored to your destination, preferred daily distances, hotel budget and timescales and I charge an upfront fee for each pack. For example, a 7 day round trip from Folkestone into France and the Vosges Mountains and Germany's Black Forest, Rhine and Moselle Rivers costs from £300 for a pack. If this service is of interest to you please get in touch with dates and details.

Here are a few testimonials

Colette planned our first motorcycle adventure in 2015 a 2,000 mile ride from London to Istanbul taking us via Europe’s highest mountain passes. It was incredible and we returned to Europe in 2016 to ride from Bucharest to Zagreb. She planned a route that took us through Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro and Albania to Croatia. In 2017 we returned for more, this time riding from Zagreb to Warsaw through Slovenia, Austria, Slovakia and The Czech Republic. Colette is currently planning our 2018 adventures and we would not leave home without her!

Thanks Colette from both Sandreine and myself, you made our ride through France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria the best we have ever experienced. Because of your guidance and recommendations we both came away saying this has been our most remembered and favourite trip to date, so thanks very much. Murray and Sandreine Kahler (Australia)


Just wanted to drop you a line to say a big THANKS for your excellent route pack and accommodation suggestions for my France and Germany trip. I had a brilliant trip and had fantastic weather too. I really appreciated your help. Steve Bacon (UK)
