Self-guided Bike Tours in France: Dordogne, Provence, Loire Valley

Cycling Vacations in France

Few countries stir the imagination like France. You may have already pictured yourself bicycling through small villages composed of beautiful stone buildings, quaint cafés, and Romanesque churches that gaze across the valley at each other under the Provençal sun.

Let us help you bring these images alive with one of our self-guided bicycle tours. Visit Roman ruins and historic market towns in Provence, explore the royal castles of the Loire Valley, and discover Europe's best rural cycling roads in the Dordogne River valley. As you experience all of this by bicycle, you'll enjoy charming and comfortable lodging as well as the wonderful food that draws so many gourmet lovers to France.

Partner Tours Collective

Great cycling experiences abound throughout Europe! Since we cannot directly operate tours everywhere, we use our vast experience and network in the continent to curate and offer tours on our website that are operated by select partners that we know and trust. These tours are similar in quality to those we operate directly in many ways – for example, self-guided tours begin with an in-person briefing (in English); bicycles are provided in optimal condition, and each customer goes through a personal bike fitting at the tour start; the roadbook and navigation instructions, as well as lodging/accommodations are of similar quality. If you have any questions about which tours fall under this category, please feel free to ask us!

Group discounts available! – please inquire.
