About FTT Tours

How it started

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 25 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. Ideal for those new to riding abroad and also those who are well seasoned travellers on a bike. Mentoring, routes, accommodation and planning have been honed to what has been described as a FanTastic Tour.

Where we go

How FTT Tours work

The tours are based on the principles of the world famous Hendon Police Driving School motorcycle course which produces the highest level of professional rider, a Police Class One.  We uniquely apply the techniques, style and standards many of which are not found in any books that produce these professional riders, to develop your knowledge, understanding and potential to improve your skills beyond that of a competent advanced rider.

We offer a series of planned routes over a three or four day weekend, during which time your riding is assessed by four mentors on a 2:1 basis. During a break your mentor will go over the ride with you, enabling you to come up with suggestions on how to improve based on the Police system of motorcycle training. The mentors, either retired police class one riders or highly skilled civilian riders who have been trained on the FTT mentors programme 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 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 looking to make you safer and faster adding polish to your ride that makes you stand out as highly skilled emulating a professional riders qualities.
