To be a cycling tourist in France is very nice. Restaurants serving excellent food are easy to find. Lunch many places is served only between 12 and 14; to reserve a table may be an advantage. In some places, the quality of bicycle paths found on the map may vary a lot.

The scenery along Cote d’Azur is fantastic, from the Italian border to Toulon. Also the coast from Montpellier to the Spanish border is beautiful. We also like biking in Lorraine, where the landscape is more green and sheltered.

Several tours under Longer Routes include biking days and overnight stays in France.
