If there is a birthplace to cycle tourism, it is Provence.
If there is a birthplace to cycle tourism, it is Provence. The scenery is spectacular as we leave the glamorous city of Cannes and head inland across fertile hills, covered in olive groves and scented with the famous herbs de Provence.
A rest day in Montpellier affords us a chance to walk Europe's largest pedestrian area, enjoying the caf's under the summer sun. Tour d'Afrique founder Henry Gold once joked that 'this is no cycling tour of Provence.' At the time he was right, but now it is.
The Spanish coast follows with its famous Paella dishes and stunning cliffs jutting down into the Mediterranean. Our last night before Barcelona is along the Costa Brava where you won't be able to resist a relaxing swim and the delectable seafood tapas!
