We specialise in self-guided custom cycling tours in the Dordogne. Our system works as follows: we take care of the routes, bikes and equipment, you make your own accommodation arrangements. This keeps costs to a minimum, transparent, and gives you the freedom to choose your lodging. Please visit our Where to Stay page for a list of accommodation recommendations.
All the equipment and information on routes and points of interest are included in the bike rental fee, see our Bike Rental page.
On-the-road assistance is also included, if required, for touring clients.
We'll help you plan your itineraries with marked maps, according to your riding level and interests: prehistory sites, renaissance and medieval castles, vineyards, bastides, market towns, or simply excellent rides on quiet country roads linking honey coloured stone villages.
The routes and itineraries we use are updated regularly, and are the result of 23 years of personal cycling experience in the region and 12 years of client feedback; they take in the best cycling and points of interest that the region has to offer. World class rides are assured!
We can custom design routes from any location in the Perigord, whether you are touring or staying in one place (as a base for loop rides).
Rates: Bike Rental rates and inclusions apply.
The only optional extras to consider are:
Luggage transfer: 1-5 bags = 50€ per transfer (+5€ per add. bag)
Waterproof panniers - 20€ per pair per trip
Luggage storage : 10 € per bag ( if you return to the same lodging at the end of your tour, they should hold your bags free of charge)
