Cycling Holidays in France
France is the perfect choice for cyclists of all abilities. Ranging from the miles and miles of flat land surrounding the majestic Loire and its stunning chateaux: the ideal setting for easy leisurely riding on quiet country roads to the rugged off road mountain biking terrain of the Alps and Pyrenées: fantastic for those keen for an endurance challenge set in spectacular scenery.
Home to the scented lavender fields of Provence, the woodlands and picturesque villages of the Dordogne, the dramatic coasts of Brittany and the Côte d'Azur and the sun-baked vineyards of Burgundy, France has a wealth of wonderful, varied scenery to enjoy from the saddle. Along the routes of these lovely cycling holidays, there is a wide range of fantastic restaurants, cafés and accommodation to enjoy French hospitality and culinary delights whilst you relax and unwind after a long day's riding.
