Frequently Asked Questions About Bike Tours in France

  • France is a fantastic destination for cycling tours! Here are some of our top reasons why:

    • Ride variety: Whether you prefer challenging mountain climbs, rolling hills, or flat canal paths, France has something for every cyclist.
    • Cyclist-friendly culture: France has a long cycling history, and cyclists are generally well-respected by motorists. There are also many cycling-friendly accommodations and restaurants throughout the country.
    • Beautiful scenery: France is home to some of the most stunning scenery in Europe, from the vineyards of Bordeaux to the lavender fields of Provence. Cycling is a great way to experience the beauty of the French countryside.
    • Delicious food and wine: No cycling trip in France would be complete without sampling the country’s world-famous food and wine. You can find plenty of opportunities to refuel and relax at charming cafes and restaurants along the way.
  • Cycling in France is safe, especially compared to some other countries. France has a well-developed network of cycling paths, called voies vertes, which are separated from traffic.  Many French motorists are accustomed to sharing the road with cyclists and are respectful of them.

    However, there are still some things to be aware of to stay safe:

    • Be familiar with the French cycling rules: These are generally similar to those in other European countries, with a few specific things to know, such as the fact that you must give way to traffic coming from the right at intersections where there are no signs.
    • Be visible: This is especially important at night when you are legally required to wear a reflective vest and have lights on your bike.
    • Be predictable: Signal your turns well in advance and ride in a straight line whenever possible.
    • Be aware of your surroundings: Don’t listen to headphones or use your phone while cycling.
  • The best times to cycle in France are spring (April-May) and autumn (September-October). During these shoulder seasons, you’ll enjoy pleasant temperatures, fewer crowds, and beautiful scenery. 

    However, if you’re set on cycling in the summer, be prepared for hot weather and bigger crowds. Just avoid the peak of the French holiday season (mid-July to mid-August) if you can.

  • France is packed full of great destinations for mountain bike tours. Here are our 3 favorite destinations:

    1. The French Alps: Home to some of the most challenging and spectacular rides in France. The Portes du Soleil area, which includes resorts like Morzine, Les Gets, and Avoriaz, is a popular choice, with a huge network of trails for all levels
    2. The Pyrenees: Another great option for challenging mountain biking is the Pyrenees mountain range, nestled on the border between France and Spain. The trails here are often more technical than those in the Alps, but the scenery is just as stunning.
    3. French Riviera: If you’re looking for more beginner-friendly rides and some extra sunshine, the French Riviera is a great option. The trails here are milder, mostly on dry, rocky terrain, and offer epic views of the Mediterranean Sea.
