This really varied and interesting tour starts just 30 minutes away from Paris in Rambouillet, a village with a cobbled main street, a King Louis XVI medieval towered château with English gardens that mimic Versailles (complete with grand canals), and Marie-Antoinette’s dairy hamlet. The tours are run by Thor, a passionate local who's keen to introduce this area to more international cyclists. He'll meet you at the train station and take you to pick up hire bikes if you don't have your own. He'll then take you into the heart of Forêt de Rambouillet, Paris' regional forest – a stunning blend of wildlife and fauna, quaint villages, farmland, rolling hills, valleys and waterways. Price includes bottled mineral water, a mini picnic of local farm products, and bike rental. The day is spent cycling mainly on bicycle paths and trails. This is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the French capital, and see, taste and explore Paris’ scenic countryside.
