Bring up wine and French culinary culture in conversation and it won’t take long for “Burgundy” to be mentioned. Rick Steves described the region as “calm, cultivated, serene; where nature is as sophisticated as the people. Traditions are strong here. If you’re looking for quintessential French culture, you’ll find it in Burgundy.” And you will see why Burgundy bike tours are an important part of Outfitter Bicycle Tours’ offerings.
Your self-guided tour will start in the beautiful large village of Beaune, Burgundy’s wine capital. Beaune and its residents are 100% focused on the production (and consumption) of the legendary Côte d’Or wines. Côte d’Or means “golden hillsides”, which you will be riding along throughout your bicycle tour.
The trek you will take through Burgundy will wind you through the world renowned vineyards of Nuits-Saint-Georges, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny Montrachet, Aloxe Corton and many more.
Towards the end of your tour, you will visit the culinary capitol of France – Dijon. The city will provide you with an unrivaled gastronomy experience. Once you have had your fill of the best food in France head south back to Beaune through the Nuits-Saint-Georges vineyard region.
We have assembled 4 to 7-night relaxed itineraries, but these are simply suggested tours. Feel free to reach out to us to customize your dream cycling vacation.
Slowing down is the best way to enjoy Burgundy. Come join us for one of our Burgundy bike tours!

“The team at the Outfitter Bicycle Tours put together an amazing holiday that I’ll never forget. We had great places to stay/eat and we were always in the thick of the action. The tour rides catered for riders of all levels and we somehow managed to visit my favourite team on a tour ride! I’ll be back to do it all again soon.”
“I was able to watch Tour de France action when I wanted and ride the beautiful roads and passes of France when I wanted, and the flexibility to do either was what I most appreciated. Conquering Mont Ventoux, Col d Galibier, Col d Semnoz, Col d Serene, Alpe de Huez, riding alongside Andy Schleck and Jens Voigt on their rest day, and 40+ mph descents that went on for miles are just some of the hi… Read more
“The support was incredible – so nice to have a car on the route for water, and so we did not have to lug gear for weather changes. With all the elevation, this was comforting. Exceptional mechanical support. We did not expect this kind of on-road support!”
I always had an idea that I wanted to go see the Tour de France once in my life. Well, I have now gone on three TdF trips with Outfitter Bicycle Tours as the experience was that good. Jamie and Joy’s low key, friendly and flexible approach made riding in the Alps an amazing experience. They did a great job of helping me determine what would maximize my experience. If I wanted an easier day, they h… Read more
