If you're planning to attend the mythic and crazy beach enduro motorcycle race, the Le Touquet Enduropale , and you're going by motorcycle, then you'll be happy to know, that for the weekend, the A16 autoroute will be free for motorcycles.
When entering the A16 autoroute, take a ticket as normal. Then when you exit at exit numbers #25 (Berck), #26 (Le Touquet) or #27 (Neufchatel-Hardelot), just show your ticket to the attendant. Usually the lane will be marked with "ENDUROPALE".
On the return trip, take a ticket, and at the exit show the ticket. If you're exit is an unmanned toll-booth, use the interphone at the cash register and jus say "Le Touquet Enduropale". The autoroute is free from Saturday 21 March 09:00 until Sunday 23:00.
Apart from the already mentioned motorcycle stops (link), the autoroute company, SANEF, have created another biker zone at the main fuel stop, the "Aire de la Baie de Somme" . It will be open on Sunday from 15:00 to 19:00. There, you'll be able to reheat yourself, eat some free soup, and get your motorcycle looked after if you've got a problem. You'll also find air for your tires and fuel.
