One of the world’s great cycling regions, beautiful coastal roads, beautiful cities, quaint rural villages, and high mountain passes. The basque people love cycling, when you ride through their countryside you will fully understand. Plan your trip to coincide with the Tour of the Basque Country, San Sebastian Classic, or Vuelta Espagne.

Dordogne & Lot Valleys

France at its best.

Beautiful river gorges, vineyards, and a seemingly endless procession of breathtaking medieval villages. The scenery is amazing, your camera will be worn-out by the end of the trip. Great quiet roads with lots of variety but no lung-busting steep grades. Here you will find some of the most beautiful cycling roads in France. April, May, June, September, and October are great. May is my favorite time. July and August can get very busy.

  • Rocamadour

Alps

Western Europes largest mountain range. Lots of roads made famous by Le Tour de France.

From Alpe d’Huez to Mont Ventoux.

To say they need no introduction is an understatement. Every cyclist has to experience the alps. Thousands of climbs, hundreds of which have featured in Le Tour de France, Paris-Nice, and the Giro de Italia. Stay in one location such as Bourg d’Oisans at the foot of Alpe d’huez or do a place to place ride. Geneva to Nice is quite the challenge as is a week-long trip starting at Alpe d’Huez and finishing on Mont Ventoux. Make it a longer trip and ride from the Alps to the Pyrenees.

  • Alpe d’Huez
  • Col de la Croix de Fer
  • Col du Galibier
  • Col de la Bonette – The highest road in the Alps at 2800m.
  • Col de Vars
  • Col d’Izoard

The ever-changing skyscape is the best in the world and creates a constant and unpredictable drama.
