France by bike: discover all the bike itineraries in France

Cycling in France is one of the most beloved activities not only by tourists, but also by the French themselves who often choose to discover the unique beauties of their country, through a bike trip.

France was one of the first European countries to have understood the importance of cycle tourism and to have invested in creating the services and infrastructure necessary for every need. For this reason, discovering France by bike is one of the most beautiful experiences that can be done.

From the wide plains of the north, to the wild coasts of Brittany and Normandy, from the Alps to the bucolic scenery of Provence: the diversity of landscapes is what makes the travel experience beyond the Alps unique. But discovering France by bike also means visiting some of the most beautiful art cities in the world, first of all Paris, but also Lyon, Strasbourg, Marseille, Nice and Nantes. 

France is also crossed by one of the most important cycle tourism routes in Europe: the Avenue Verte, which connects London and Paris following the Eurovelo 1. Furthermore, it is important to know that the cycle tourism routes in the country are mainly divided into two types: the Voies Vertes, routes closed to car traffic, and the ordinary road network.

Choose your cycling holiday in France along the most beautiful cycle paths across the Alps

The cycle paths in France are numerous, given the extent of the country itself. In fact, there are more than 2600 km of voiesvertes, therefore paths exclusively dedicated to bicycles, but to these must also be added all the other itineraries that instead run along the road network.

If you are looking for the perfect cycling trip in France, here are some itineraries we have selected for you:

Frequently asked questions

  • Bikes
  • Bookings
  • Journey
Can I bring my own bike?

Of course! You can enjoy each tour on your own bike or you can rent one. However, we do recommend renting a bike, because not all bikes have the same parts, so we can only guarantee the best mechanical assistance when you hire directly from us.

What kind of assistance will I have during the trip?

You will always have an emergency phone number you can call. On self-guided trips, you will need to be able to make your own minor repairs, such as replacing an inner tube in the event of a puncture, or fixing a slipped chain, but you can always count on assistance on site for more serious damage.

How can I know if a tour matches my level of ability?

We rank our tours on a scale of 1 to 5, based on the length, elevation changes and complexity of the itinerary, but if you have any doubts then please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help you find the trip that is right for you.

How do I book a tour?

To book a tour, simply click on “quote”, fill in all the fields, and pay the deposit. We will check the tour’s availability with our partners and provide confirmation within a few hours.

Why should I book through Cyclando?

Because we guarantee you the lowest price, and in the event that your tour is not available or confirmed, you can always request a refund of your deposit or choose another trip from among the over 800 vacations we offer on our platform.

Should I purchase travel insurance?

We offer free medical and baggage insurance for all Italian citizens on all our tours. We also recommend that you take out a cancellation policy; please click on this link for more information.

Can I find out which hotels I’ll be staying at in advance?

We take choosing hospitality facilities very seriously, and to offer you as much flexibility as possible when booking, we often have a large number of hotels to choose from. For this reason we cannot provide an exact list of hotels before booking.

What is included in the tour price?

On each trip, you can click on “Dates and Prices” to see what is included, and what is not. Of course, you can always write to us or call us to find out more information or to request clarification.
