Channel to the Med

11 Days Advanced - Challenging 840 MLS

"Welcome to Peak Tour’s cycle challenge “extraordinaire”, the 10 Day Channel to the Med cycling holiday in France from one end of this beautiful country to the other. Starting from the northern French coast at Ouistreham close to the port town of Caen we continue southwards to finish the tour near Nice on the Mediterranean coastline 10 days later.

So, Why France? France is a wide and diverse country which contains a variety of different and stunning landscapes. France is also only one quarter as densely populated as the UK and much more rural so the roads are quieter and cyclists are treated with a good general level of respect.

Most people have heard of the Tour de France and the country can arguably be considered the cultural home of cycling. We will cycle through some of the iconic landscapes that you may have seen whilst watching “The Tour” and most notably we will take in the unforgettable Mont Ventoux and Gorge de Verdon en-route to Nice.

France enjoys much better weather than the UK so chances of a dry and sunny tour are much more likely than if tackling LEJOG although it must also be noted that it can get very hot in the summer months, especially in the south.

France is also well known for it’s gastronomy and also fine wines and we will do our best to ensure that you sample plenty of the delights on offer. Added to that a rich culture, medieval villages and stunning architecture, all of which makes France an ideal place for a long distance cycle tour. Covering the country from the English Channel to the Mediterranean enables you to visit many of Frances most beautiful and interesting places."
