Burgundy Cycling Holidays

Of course on the Burgundy cycling tour we explore famous vineyards within Burgundy's Cote d'Or, including Gevrey Chambertin, Romanée Conti, Chassagne-Montrachet etc.  But Burgundy is also historically very interesting as a Duchy independent of France, with a rich monastic heritage that includes Fontenay, Citeaux and the Clos Vougeot. 

We spend the first part of our week in rolling farmland, perfect cycling country that follows the Canal de Bourgogne to Dijon.

As befits such beautiful wines, Burgundy is one of the finest food regions in France, and boy do we make the most of that!  Burgundy classics include Boeuf Bourguignonne, escargots, frogs legs, coq-au-vin, oeufs meurette, jambon persillé. A food-lover’s paradise.

Trip details

A relatively flat tour; we start in Montbard and finish in Dijon; 8 days / 7 nights. This tour is available as a self-guided option.

Tour dates

We have just returned from a brilliant holiday in the Dordogne with the Chain Gang. I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know what a fabulous time we had and how great Pete was to have alongside us. He is the perfect combination of mechanic, butler and court jester. You can tell him that!

I have no doubt that we will join a tour next summer too. Possibly in Provence next time.

Finally, I wondered if you could tell us what bikes we were riding? We have decided to buy ones as similar as possible as they were so good

Great week in the Dordogne, great bikes. Lyndsay Parker, UK
