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

Our guide led us expertly on each day's ride of 30 miles or so, selecting quiet roads and tasty lunch stops and, at the end of every afternoon, a comfortable hotel with a menu to do justice to the region's rich gastronomy. He carried a repair outfit, a first aid kit and a sense of humour, which coped with almost every eventuality.
