The Dordogne region of southwest France has been attracting visitors for years and on this trip we offer the widest variety of rural French riding possible in a week’s getaway! As well as cycling past classic Dordogne vineyards and over rolling green hills, this trip also takes us toward the Massif Centrale and visits the Auvergne, one of France’s most deeply rural and undiscovered regions. 
The Dordogne area, famous for its gentle rolling hills and medieval fortified towns, is a dramatic contrast with the more rugged landscaped of the Auvergne, and its chains of distinctive looking extinct volcanoes spotted in the second part of our journey. Along the way we will feast on the truffles of the Dordogne and the famous Cantal cheese of the Auvergne.
We begin our journey through wooded hills, with occasional glimpse of grandiose past châteaux hidden between the trees to the fertile Lot valley. Lined with vineyards we follow the valley to Cahors, famous for its red wine and its ancient bridge. Joining the Cele River we explore the tranquil Parc Naturel de Quercy, staying overnight in the  medieval market town of Figeac.
As we head towards the Auvergne, vineyards and peaceful rivers are replaced by rolling hills and the sound of cowbells. In the middle of the journey we have shorter daily distances and engage our climbing legs as the route follows in the footsteps of the 2016 Tour de France up the Puy Mary (1,588m). The majestic vistas of the chain of extinct conical volcanic peaks and lush green valleys makes for a memorable day of riding.
Our journey returns westward through the little known Upper Dordogne region before we rejoin the Dordogne river valley. The holiday features numerous scenic lunch spots for a Skedaddle style picnic along with carefully chosen accommodation offering delicious traditional cuisine.
