We organise both fully supported and self-guided cycling holidays taking in a variety of regions in France. Our itineraries last from several days to a fortnight with varying daily distances, and varying terrain. What they have in common are quiet roads, comfortable hotels, and beautiful landscapes.
On our fully supported tours we accompany the holiday with a vehicle and full back up. We transport your luggage each day, and are close at hand in case you need assistance, get lost, or fancy a ride in the vehicle. Our French speaking guides are always on hand to help and advise, and they know our routes intimately.
On our self-guided options you make your own way from place to place, carrying your own luggage and making use of our detailed route notes. This allows you the flexibility to travel when you can, be it a last minute decision to hop across the channel or a week long tour where you want to know that hotels and route are taken care of. In short, we take the guess-work out of the planning.
The bicycle is a wonderful means of transport, being quick enough to cover a good distance each day, yet slow enough to take it all in. What’s more, when you’re taking lots of exercise you can eat and drink what you like without feeling guilty!
We advise our clients to make as much preparation as they can before their trip. The more you do before, the more you will enjoy it. The rule of thumb is that if you can cover half the day’s distance non-stop, then you will be able to cover the whole distance once you throw in several breaks for eating, sightseeing or just sitting by the side of the road enjoying a fine view. Therefore all of our trips are within reach of moderately active people, and indeed even the longest have been completed by people who have made no preparations whatsoever.
We actively encourage single travellers who do not pay a supplement (unless they specifically request a single room) and who will immediately have much in common with the other guests.
We hope that you like our selection of tours. If you cannot find what you are looking for please get in touch as we can tailor our trips, or even create new ones for you. It’s what we love doing!
