Epicurean and curious to discover new horizons, I traveled a lot before putting down my suitcases more than ten years ago in Touraine. Lovers of my region of adoption, I want to share my passion and my enthusiasm aboard my beautiful vintage sidecar. Motorcycle driver for thirty years, and sidecars for ten years, I will drive you safely and you will benefit from new vehicles and equipment.

Expérience exceptionnelle! Moyen idéal pour visiter Tours, Frédéric nous propose un véritable moment entre parenthèses. Pour allier visite historique, balade originale et vrai échange humain: foncez! A noter la petite pause gustative vraiment originale et rafraîchissante.
