Holiday Information

This self-guided cycling holiday in France visits one of the country's most beautiful areas - Burgundy. France is a country that is synonymous with idyllic cycling holidays and where quiet country lanes and backroads lead you through unspoilt countryside where cyclists are welcomed, and the pleasures of the palate are daily rewarded. This part of France is famous for its warm hospitality and inimitable knack for enjoying life. Burgundy is rich in tradition, gastronomy, history and excellent wines. For centuries people have been lured to this beautiful land of gently rolling landscapes, sleepy villages, rivers and canals. Burgundy is the old France, a land of culture, countryside, fine food and wine and there's no better way to explore it than by bike.
Stately historic castles, miles of straight Roman roads and magnificent Romanesque churches give constant reminders of Burgundy’s heritage. The tour is designed for those who want to take their time cycling and enjoy a land rich in tradition and of course the fine wines of Beaune and Maconnais. During your day on the bike, there are only a few large hills to climb and so it's suitable for those after an easy paced cycling holiday.
Our French cycling holidays are all about good food, comfortable accommodation and beautiful cycling routes which create a memorable cycling holiday experience. Whether travelling to France by plane, driving or taking the train, a warm welcome will greet you at your first night's accommodation. You will be staying in carefully selected small 2 and 3 star hotels and guesthouses. This holiday is available for Friday, Saturday and Sunday departures for a minimum of two people. We book all your accommodation, transfer your luggage and provide you with cycling routes and a detailed itinerary. Just contact us with your preferred dates.
