Holiday Information

This gentle, self-guided cycling holiday in France allows you to experience the delights of “Old France”. During this leisurely cycling tour through Burgundy you will bike through two of the region's most picturesque and romantic waterways.
The first part of your journey takes you through classic French rolling landscapes, sleepy villages and medieval half timbered homes as you follow the Canal de Bourgogne between Montbard and Joigny. Beyond here you'll pick up the route of Canal du Nivernais and visit Auxerre before cycling to Clamecy and ultimately Vézelay, before being transferred back to Montbard. 
Our French cycling holidays are all about good food, comfortable accommodation and beautiful cycling routes which create a memorable cycling holiday experience. Whether travelling to France by plane, driving or taking the train, a warm welcome will greet you at your first night's accommodation. 
Mostly along flat terrain this French cycling holiday is great for those looking for a leisurely paced holiday. This holiday is available for departures on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, for a minimum of two people. We book all your accommodation, transfer your luggage and provide you with cycling routes and a detailed itinerary. Just contact us with your preferred dates.
