Bruges to Bordeaux: A cycling challenge not to be missed

Set your sights on an exciting new 900-mile Iconic Journey in 2018! This cross-border challenge, takes you through not 1, but 2 countries and offers a totally unique insight into Belgium and France. Take a closer look at Bruges to Bordeaux:

The journey in a nutshell…
From the cobbled climbs near Bruges to the extinct volcanoes of Auvergne, we cross Belgium and France from east to west through the wine-growing regions of Champagne, Burgundy and Bordeaux. This journey of varied terrain and culture is a must-do!

A note on the cycling…
The terrain varies dramatically with flatter days near to the start, a crescendo of climbing in the middle and more gentle rolling hills as we reach our conclusion. The mid-section of the route becomes increasingly hilly as we cross the Massif Central, before finishing with easier riding along the delightful Dordogne. 

A highlight to look out for…
Watch out for the climb of Le Puy Mary, a now extinct volcano with a cheeky 1600m ascent. Notably this featured on the Tour de France’s 2016 edition!
