The Sunny Mediterranean Dream!
We fell in love with cycling the Mediterranean coast during several extended visits. Using it as our base, we savored the not-so-long loop rides, perfectly pitched climbs (i.e. not too steep), jaw-dropping views and obligatory lunch stops in hillside hamlets. Days off the bike were equally as complete with sunrise runs on the Promenade, soaking our legs in the Mediterranean, cruising the local farmer’s market or relaxing with our noses in a book. It’s no wonder why so many cyclists choose this paradise as their base.
The French Riviera is a natural stopover for a destination tour. Why leave when there are fantastic loop rides just outside your hotel door? This region is perfect for those looking for great cycling not too far from civilization and the most beautiful French coast. Our itineraries include custom made stay-in-one-place sojourns to one of our most epic loops into the Mediterranean Alps. You’ll find plenty of local cyclists and good cafes in these hills and a correspondingly low volume of vehicle traffic.
The Rides. The rides are designed for endurance and building a strong climbing foundation but no one day is a sufferfest. Nothing is obligatory, particularly if you want to take the day off or spend an afternoon exploring the villages.
