Cycling in France

Burgundy is renowned for its exceptional wines, unique culture and fascinating history. We cycle through a landscape of grand châteaux, along part of the Canal de Bourgogne and past famous vineyards along the 'wine route' between Dijon and Chalon-sur-Sâone. Four of the rides are circular and therefore optional, offering flexibility to blend sightseeing and cycling to see how the Dukes of Burgundy and Cistercian Monks shaped this land.

Tour Highlights

  • Villages and chateaux and the Canal de Bourgogne - Historic, picturesque villages and towns of Burgundy
  • Food and Wine - Quiet back roads and cycle paths, experience fine local cuisine and optional wine tastings
  • The Wine Route - Cycle the classic trail between Dijon and Chalon-sur-Saone
  • Picturesque landscapes of Burgundy - rewarding views from the saddle

Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 370 km over six days (an average of 62 km per day). Four of the cycling days are circular routes and therefore optional. We travel mainly on quiet country lanes (90%) with some gravel tracks (10%). The terrain is rolling countryside with occasional longer hills. Maps are provided to cycle individually or in groups while the tour leader drives the support vehicle, except on circular routes when the tour leader will cycle with the group. We have graded the route as moderate.
