France cycling – beautiful French landscapes

Hundreds have discovered the delight of cycling along quiet tracks and roads in beautiful scenery on our cycling holidays. We return home healthy and fit, having had an exciting time exploring carefully selected routes. Good quality bikes are available for hire.
 

Choose your pace

We will split into different groups depending on the type of cycling you are looking for. The first group take everything at a relaxed pace, admiring the scenery, while the fastest group enjoy the chance to prove their fitness! With other groups in between as well, the holiday is ideal for everyone that is looking for an active and refreshing break.

 
 

Pre-arranged routes

We will follow a range of carefully selected routes, which gradually increase in length from around 20 miles on the first day to around 45 miles on the last day. All the rides are of course optional but by building up the length of the rides through the week, the groups build up their fitness and you may well be surprised to find how far you can cycle! 

There are also options at certain points to extend or shorten the distance. For example, on one of the rides you can either stop to explore St Remy, where Van Gogh painted some of his most famous pictures, or challenge yourself by riding up Les Baux de Provence with the reward of excellent views at the top. 

 

Provence – beautiful city of Avignon

The jewel of Provence is the fortified city of Avignon on the banks of the River Rhône, with its castle, Pope’s Palace, and hillside gardens. We stay on a campsite which is within sight of the famous bridge (‘Pont d’Avignon’).

From this base we can cruise through the outstanding scenic beauty of Provence at the leisurely pace of cycling to a different location each time for our lunchtime stop.

Orange, for example, is an historic town containing an ancient Roman theatre where world-famous concerts are held. Another lunchtime stop is the Pont du Gard, with its famous aqueduct and the option of canoeing on the river.

An ideal end to each day

At the campsite, we provide the tents and you can bring whatever makes you comfortable for sleeping, such as an airbed. After a day’s cycling we return to our campsite for an energising meal prepared by the Oak Hall team, as well as a Bible talk that is always a highlight. We can then relax and share stories of the day’s cycling or take part in games and activities.
