Aveyron Gorge – Gravel Cycling Holidays

Get off the beaten track to explore gorges and river valleys with locals

Offered by:
St Antonin Noble Velo

Phone number:
+33 (0)6 65 97 61 81

Tour length:
4 days / 5 nights, or bespoke packages can be put together

Price:
Varies depending on your package - please ask

These gravel cycling holidays in the Aveyron Gorge area of SW France are ideal for adventurous groups wanting to ride trails usually only experienced by locals. Following routes designed by local cyclist Peter, the riding here does not follow sanitised, graded biking trails. Peter has struggled along trails that are blocked or non-existant so that you don’t have to. Expect forest trails, river rides and trails that follow gorges and cliffs. This really is an exceptional area for gravel riding – the sheer volume of good trails is staggering, as well as wild and largely little-ridden. Rides can be challenging at times but they will be designed for you and your ability, and no one will be left behind. B&B accommodation is in an award-winning 16th century auberge in historic St-Antonin-Noble-Val, with vegetarian or vegan evening meals on request. Choose a set-date gravel holidays or ask for a trip to be designed for you. Ask Peter also about his 100-mile/160-km gravel challenges.

£985 for camping with B&B option available on request

Experience one of France's most popular canals by bike, taking the famous canal from Toulouse right the way through to the Med and then along the coast towards Provence.

If you prefer you can stay in B&Bs rather than camping, the choice is yours. Price includes support car, luggage transfers and guide, all campsite breakfasts or B&B if selected, plus lunches en route and some evening meals. You can combine this tour with the Atlantic Coast and Entre Deux Mers trips to navigate your way from the top of France to the bottom.

7 days

Price:
From €795

Cycle from Le Puy en Velay to Conques along this ancient route. For centuries, the historically important routes of Saint James have been used by pilgrims and hikers on their way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Probably the oldest hiking trail of all time, since the Via Agrippa, which went from Lyon to Toulouse, was built by the Romans. Partly on the hiking trail, partly on parallel trails, this bike route crosses the Margeride Plateau, with its traditional villages, sleepy hamlets, religious crosses and pastures surrounded by stone walls. Then make your way across the Plateau de l’Aubrac, with its wide open spaces, its "burons" (stone mountain huts used for cheese-making), and its dry stone walls. The route then takes you down through beech, oak and chestnut forests to the beautiful Lot Valley. The journey ends with a tour of the village of Conques. The price of this tour includes 7 nights in guesthouses and 2* hotels in double rooms with en-suite facilities, 7 breakfasts, 7 dinners (3- to 4-course menu), daily baggage transfers, a carefully designed itinerary, navigation app for smartphones, a detailed roadbook including maps (digital format) and GPS track.
