We design your week day-by-day while you’re here

Every week is different and unique—crafted to fit you. We listen and observe, factor in your interests and aspirations each day—together with current local road conditions and where the wind and weather are favorable. Some of the many choices of destinations available to us:

L’Hermitage — very gentle rollers
Côtes du Rhône vineyards, castle town of Tournon-sur-Rhône, Valrhôna chocolate factory & Chapoutier wine-tasting room in Tain l’Hermitage, scenic Routes des Belvédères & Corniche du Rhône.

Drôme des Collines — modest hills
St. Antoine l’Abbaye, early Gothic abbey, pilgrimage site for sufferers of ergot (wheat fungus) poisoning, also known as St. Anthony’s fire. Along the way, visit a remarkable outdoor model Railway Garden in Chatte. Or, ride through walnut groves to Vinay to visit the museum of walnut agriculture, featuring the local AOC (protected name) ”Grenoble walnut“.

Gorges — dramatic, but gentle
Spectacular, but the roads follow gradual grades. Combe Laval. Grands Goulets. Gorges de la Bourne & Choranche Grottoes (15% grade for the first km after the turnoff from the D531 road). Gorges du Nan.

Vercors high plateau — varied
Memorial to the Resistance at Col de Lachau. Museum of Prehistory, Resistance Memorial at Vassieux en Vercors.

Classic Tour de France Climbs — challenging
Alpe d’Huez, Col du Glandon & Col de la Croix de Fer: Rides up these classic Tour de France ascents start about a 1½ hour drive away.

Drôme Provençal — varied
Just south of the Vercors plateau and bordering Provence are lavender fields, olive groves, oak groves hiding black truffles, the tower at Crest – said to be the tallest in France, Clairette de Die sparkling white wine made in the Drôme river valley … all just a short drive away.
