France cycling tours

France is great for cycling, with kilometres of cycle paths and itineraries running the length and width of the country, you can explore some of the most beautiful and typical French regions by bicycle. In France, our cycling trips take you along the paths of Provence with its colourful villages and local markets, and Corsica.
Whether you are an amateur bike rider or an experienced cyclist, you are sure to find a French cycling holiday to suit you. Embark on a self-guided cycling tour on easy terrain, through vineyards and olive groves to the Pont du Gard. A more moderate cycling holiday through perched medieval villages or the back country of the French Riviera. Or book a challenging cycling holiday and tackle the famous Mont Ventoux or the tricky terrain in Corsica.
