Cycling Holidays France

Cycling in France

The drama of the iconic Tour de France is owed in part to its diverse and often beautiful surroundings. Our cycling holidays in France cover a range of stunning terrain just begging to be explored, and will leave you in no doubt as to why cycling is one of the country’s most popular pastimes.   

You’ll take in some of the nation’s most stunning regions on Exodus cycling trips in France. Try a leisurely self-guided trip in the Loire Valley and drop in on what is considered the finest chateaux in France, or free-wheel through hilltop villages and lavender-scented meadows in Provence.

In the North, you can enjoy tranquil rides through the back roads of Brittany and along its spectacular Emerald Coast – with plenty of stop-offs to sample fresh seafood platters and famous Breton cider. If it’s the gastronomy that gets you going, why not drop in on the steep valleys and ancient villages of the Dordogne to hunker down on some of the best local delicacies the region has to offer? 

And of course, there’s the classic Alps cycling routes of the Tour de France. Join the peloton on the legendary climb up to Mont Ventoux, or battle for the yellow jersey on the jaw-dropping 21 hairpin bends on the road to Alpe d’Huez. Our cycling holidays in France truly offer something for everyone.

How long are your cycling trips in France?

How long do you want to be in the saddle? Our cycling tours in France run from four to nine days including flights, with a mix of leisurely routes to lay back on and trickier options to put your legs to the test. You could spend four days climbing one of the Tour de France’s iconic mountains, or double that time gently pedalling through the villages and vineyards of Burgundy.  

Are your cycling trips in France guided?

The majority of our fantastic cycling holidays in France are self-guided, giving you the freedom to step on and off as you wish with our detailed route notes in hand. We’ll still arrange for your luggage transfers if you’re moving from base to base. On our more challenging routes – Mont Ventoux and Alpine Cols – you’ll be in the safe hands of one of our experienced tour leaders, and backed up by a support vehicle along the way in case you need it.
