Bike Tours in France


France is unquestionably the home of cycle touring with many more tours available (over 1000!) than any other country in the world. It's hardly surprising with spectacular regions like the Loire Valley, Provence and Normandy. However there are gems and magical rides of all types and degrees of difficulty throughout the country - many of which are off the beaten tourist track.

Too many tours to choose from? Then choose your favourite region or any of the other filters available. The following breakdown is from a cycling perspective so is much more influenced by geography than by politics or administration.
 
 1   Paris and Upper France  8    Atlantic France
 2   Normandy  9    Dordogne and Lot
 3   Champagne Alsace-Lorraine 10   Alps
 4   Brittany 11   Languedoc and Garonne
 5   Loire Valley 12   Provence Côte d'Azur
 6   Burgundy Franche-Comte 13   Pyrenees
 7   Central France 14   Corsica
