Undoubtedly, one of the countries in Europe with the most attractive and more possibilities for cycling trips is France. Of course, the best showcase of this country are its epic cycling battles that every summer during the month of July we watch on TV during the retransmissions of the stages of the gala round: "Le Tour de France". For lovers of this sport, lovers of competition, to emulate their idols cyclists on the roads where previously the peloton has passed is something very striking and a unique experience.
As well as tours in the Alps with mythical climbs such as Alpe d'Huez, Galibier, Madeleine, Joux Plaine, Mont Ventoux or Colombière among others are very striking and much sought after by customers who want to spend a holiday in the Alps climbing Tour ports. On the other hand, tours in the Pyrenees with ports such as Tourmalet, Hautacam, Plateau de Beille, Luz Ardiden or Aubisque among others are the attractions to conquer in this mountain range.
Those who instead of the epic cyclist what they are looking for are great landscapes and spectacular descents on their mountain bike will also find great offer with several ski resorts that offer downhill circuits in winter with specialized lifts for bikes. In addition, routes such as the Tour du Montblanc on BTT are very spectacularly scenic and very photographed to hang daily a large number of photos on Instagram. Finally, for those people who want to know a territory through the use of bicycles, France has a wide range of areas with cultural, scenic and culinary attractions of great name and interest. We can highlight Provence, the castles of the Loire or the Canal du Midi among others. These are undoubtedly the areas most visited by occasional cyclists who do not intend to compete but rather enjoy visiting good hotels, good restaurants, museums, wine tastings and other tourist activities rather than sports.
Cycling in France with Terra Bike Tours
If something differentiates us from other travel agencies specializing in bicycle tourism, in guided tours in high altitude areas such as the Alps and the Pyrenees, it is always the availability of the necessary vehicles to transport the entire group of cyclists and their bicycles. This is especially important when climbing ports of more than 2,000 meters, where the weather can be very variable and where once in the high to make the descents by bicycle can be very uncomfortable and dangerous. That's why our fleet of vans, guides and trailers always adapts to the volume of customers to be able to offer this service at any time and instantly.
In our agency we are able to adapt to the needs of each of these profiles of cyclists developing guided tours with full support from the beginning of the creation of the route to the trip itself. We already have in catalogue certain trips such as The Great Alps from north to south or from south to north, the crossing of the Pyrenees, the Canal du Midi or the Langedoc but we have the ability to offer tailor made trips in any of the other French areas that we do not have in catalogue.
