Cycling Holidays in France
Why choose us?
Go direct to our independent road & cycle path holidays in France
We have three road and cycle path cycling holidays on offer in the Beaujolais, Burgundy and Dordogne regions of France that are perfect for those who enjoy gourmet food and fine wines.
The Burgundy holiday is a gentle ride among the vineyards, well suited to families who are looking for a cultural break.
The Beaujolais holiday is best suited to more active cyclists who want to explore the rolling green hills beyond the vineyards. Taking in the Beaujolais, the southern Burgundy and some of the Charolais region, you will be cycling through an ever changing upland landscape of patchwork fields, woodland and quaint villages.
The Dordogne cycling holiday is a moderate cycle through the historic delights of the region passing through some of the most extraordinary villages of France clinging onto steep cliffs lining the beautiful Dordogne valley.
We offer holidays where an authentic French experience is guaranteed. Stunning landscapes, local delicacies, cultural delights and a genuine friendly welcome are features of these holidays. Don’t worry if you don’t speak much French, many of the locals have a good grasp of the English language. You’ll find that an open mind, warm smile and desire to communicate are usually enough to get by.
Our routes usually consist of multi-day circuits. You will stay more than one night in some guest houses allowing you time to relax or to explore the local area using local trails. We transport your bags between guest houses so you only need to carry the essentials.
Please visit our dedicated web page which describes our policy on choosing accommodation. Our philosophy is simple; we look for traditional guest houses in beautiful surroundings, where a personal, friendly service is guaranteed and where authentic, French food and drink is on offer.
Want to explore somewhere completely different away from the crowded tourist trails, then why not try the High Beaujolais. The rolling hills in this area have both steep and gentle slopes rising to over 1000m in height, creating ideal terrain for mountain bikers of all levels. There are some 71 trails amounting to nearly 2300km of possible riding, within a relatively small area close to Beaujeu, the ancient capital of the Beaujolais region. The trails are varied, exploring the peaks and valleys of the high Beaujolais, passing through vines, fields and forests. Most trails are fairly short and can be finished within the day or half-day.
Our holidays are designed for those looking for maximum independence and flexibility, whilst having the assurance of quality accommodation and detailed information, so that you can make the most from your holiday.
We provide you with maps, guide books and an information pack. You can hire bikes from us or you can bring your own. Your own form of transport is essential for our single centre based holidays.
