I probably don't have to explain it, but I will anyway... as usual, whenever there's a big motorcycle event in France, the government and the French motorcycle federation, FFMCFederation Francaise des Motards en Colere - Angry French Biker Association, an association of bikers fighting for the rights of motorcycle riders, organize special motorcycle rest stops along the way to the event. This year is not different, there are many stops where you can get your motorcycle checked, your visors cleaned, your tire pressure adjusted, or where you can get a bite or drink. It's also a great meeting place...

So here are the motorcycle rest stops (called Relais Calmos Motards) for the 24 Hours of Le Mans Open link in a new window motorcycle race held 18-19 April.
