We're a bit impartial to this itinerary at FWF because we live on the route; we ride these roads a lot and know what a wonderful area it is for cycling. On this itinerary, you head out of Bordeaux on the Roger Lapebie bike route and into the vines of the Entre deux Mers, its undulating landscape providing stunning views across the valley. You'll loop back up through Rauzan (if you're lucky you'll catch its famous antiques market) before continuing on to the old UNESCO-listed town of St-Emilion for a glass of red among the vines. It's then east to Ste-Foy-la-Grande (try and time your trip to be there on a Saturday morning for the market – voted the best in France). Further east is Bergerac and Montbazillac (beware the hill!), home to some of the region's finest sweet white wines (and at a fraction of the prices of Sauternes). From here it's into the Dordogne proper for pre-history, hill-top villages and more river valleys. Price includes B&B hotel accommodation, travel folder and maps in French or English, luggage transfers, bike hire, and emergency phone support.

This nine-day tour aims to give you a flavour of the north-west of France, with its proud history. While geographically adjacent, these two regions of France have very distinct identities – but the one thing they have in common is their cycling heritage: both are well-developed in terms of cycle tourism and are friendly and welcoming places to ride. Brittany occupies a peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean and is strong in seafaring traditions. It has wonderful beaches and pretty harbours, with its interior giving way to forest and ancient history. Normandy is a lush and verdant landscape, with agriculture at its heart – here, apple orchards feed cider and calvados production, while cattle are grazed for beef and cheese. Normandy is also dotte with impressive chateaux and manor houses, and historical villages. This tour starts in St Malo and heads west into Brittany before turning east for Normandy. 
2019 dates: August 24-September 1 fully supported and guided, but available other dates as self-guided. Can also be tailored for groups.
