OUR STORY

We’re a family run trail‑riding, green-laning and adventure break company based in central France. We provide riders with excellent facilities, amazing scenery and a great time.

Why Choose Us?

When you book a trip, you want to know that you’re in safe hands. With Centre Trail you can rest assured.

France is unique in Europe when it comes to fully guided trail riding or enduro tours as the only way they are permitted is if the operator/guide has a CQP qualification*. It’s sanctioned by the French government and the FFM, the French equivalent to the ACU (UK), KNMV (NL) or the FMB (B).

The founder of Centre Trail, Tom, became the first, and to date the ONLY, non-French national to achieve this status in June of 2014. So when you ride and stay with us you are safe in the knowledge that it’s with an established, professional company.

Your Hosts

Your hosts, Tom and Julie, have combined the knowledge of providing First Class customer service for a leading multi-national company with the clear vision of what constitutes a memorable off-road adventure break.

Centre Trail, the resulting creation, reflects this with facilities for both bike and rider that are of the highest quality and always 100% off-road orientated.

Tom’s unique status as the sole foreign national in France to hold the only government authorised qualification for conducting guided off-road motorcycle tours further reinforces the professional approach at Centre Trail.

The Trails

There are those that say our network of trails depart from the back door while others maintain they are more likely to commence from the front entrance. Regardless of the exact location of the start of your riding day one thing is certain, within seconds you will be immersed in a region famed for it’s vast network of ancient rights of way and en-route to a memorable experience.

The Base

Centre Trail’s base is geared exclusively to the requirements of riding off-road. In addition to the comfortable farmhouse accommodation there are first rate facilities in the form of heated changing rooms, a fully equipped workshop, gear drying room, ultra secure bike storage and powerful pressure washers.

Another amazing feature of our base is the 5km+ enduro loop that totally surrounds the hamlet and will provide more than enough exercise for even the most die-hard fans of technical wooded trails.
