As usual, when there's a major motorcycle race in France, the Association of Angry Bikers (FFMC Open link in a new window), the government and the autoroute companies place several rest areas for the motorcycle riders attending a race.

This year's Le Touquet Enduropale Open link in a new window, world's craziest and biggest beach race, is no exception. But since it's still winter, there are less rest places.

The motorcycle rest places, known as "Relais Motards Calmos", are places where you'll find like-minded bikers, hot drinks, sandwiches, and possibly mechanical repair stations.

The Relais Calmos for this year's events are:

NOTE
: If you're planning to attend this year crazy event, usually on the Sunday, in the morning, the autoroutes going to Le Touquet, and in the afternoon, leaving Le Touquet, are free. I have not been able to get confirmation about this, but normally, you get you entry ticket to the autoroute, and when exiting at Le Touquet, you are waved through (if you're on a motorcycle). If this is the case this year, it is only valid on the autoroutes that lead directly to Le Touquet.
