Our Bike Tours

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to bicycle vacations—that’s why we offer something for everyone. Whether you seek a climbing adventure that takes you up challenging peaks or a relaxed ride through idyllic landscapes, we have a cycling tour for you.

Our Self Guided tours let individuals, couples, or groups large or small enjoy one of our expertly-curated tours at their own leisure. Self guided tour guests chose their own departure dates and are free to modify any of our recommended routes with custom options. From leisurely tours through vineyards to aggressive adventures in the high mountains, we can satisfy any cyclist craving.

Several of our routes merit the leadership of experienced guides. For guests wishing to ride the Tour de France route, cross high mountain routes on a point-to-point tour, or imbibing the best craft beer & touring breweries, Guided Tours are available for the 2016 season. read more

What Our Guests Say...

“We’ve returned home now and I wanted to say a big thank you for a wonderful trip. It came off without a hitch and we enjoyed many of the routes you mapped out for us.

We also added Oppede le Vieux on the second day, which is a worthwhile stop. Thanks agai… Read more

    Ten Things You Could Experience Staying at a Team Hotel
