Paris to Nice
Come on a truly once-in-a-lifetime cycle experience through France and the Alps to the sunny Med.
Our route takes us from the Eiffel Tower, through Paris into the fields of wheat and sunflowers of rural France. Dotted with small medieval towns and sleepy villages, the landscape varies from farmland to forests and the famous vineyards around Chablis as we pass through the region of Burgundy, famous for its wines. The gentle rolling hills that form much of the landscape en-route provide the perfect preparation for the hair-pin bends of the Col de la Faucille (1323m), a climb that has featured many times in the Tour de France; a wonderful decent takes us into Switzerland and down to beautiful lakeside Geneva. After a day to rest we set off through the Alps to Provence, riding through beautiful scenery of towering mountain peaks, spectacular limestone cliffs and gorges, dense forests and lavender fields. With long, challenging days in the saddle, the magnificence of the landscapes motivates us to keep pedalling! Our unforgettable ride ends with a fabulous descent from the hills through the Gorge du Loup to Nice and the beach, where we have time to relax and appreciate our huge achievement.
