- Mediaeval castles, bastide towns and ancient villages
- Hearty food – cassoulet, foie gras and duck are local specialities
- Red wines from Bergerac and Cahors
- Character hotels in historic towns
- Varied terrain
- World Heritage Sites such as Rocamadour and St Cirque Lapopie
The Dordogne and Lot are regions named after the two rivers which flow through them. Using our usual formula of quiet roads and interesting overnight stops, we have created a tour of roughly 50 miles a day over varying terrain; there are some hilly sections so some preparation is required but we are confident they are within the grasp of most cyclists. There are also some longer flatter sections. What is common to all parts of the ride are fantastic views, plenty of historic sights, and scores of pretty villages.
Whilst the area is rural in nature, it is not remote and you are never far from a town. There is so much to see that since we added this tour to our schedules for 2017, it has become one of our own favourite tours and proved very popular with our riders!
Whilst we have graded this tour moderate there are a couple of harder days - it is 'Medium +' overall but well within the ability of the regular cyclist or relatively active person.
Bergerac is well connected with flights from a good number of UK cities including London Stansted, Southampton, Bristol, Manchester and Edinburgh. Flight schedules can be found here.
Single supplement (for those specifically requiring a single room) £445.
