Bike touring in France

Jump to last reply

Hello. We are heading back to Europe next Fall and part of our trip will be in Southern France where we would like to do a bike tour, self guided, for up to a week. I have searched the forums for information but I can only find old posts, nothing within the past year or so.

We are a couple in our 60s, fit, and would like to do a sightseeing rather than a Tour de France bike trip in the country side. One of the ones I was looking at was along the Canal du Midi which looks great to me. The time of year will be early to mid October.

The company I found online is 'Biking France'. They seem reasonable in price and the days are a maximum riding of 55K per day which is perfect.

I can't find any reviews on them however, even though they have been around for a long time it seems. Has anyone used them, or recommend another company?

We will not consider bringing our own bikes as this is just a small part of a three month trip, but have considered just renting a bike and doing our own thing. Having our luggage sent ahead to the next destination is the most appealing part of these tours however.

So the question is: Has anyone done this in the past couple of years who can recommend a good company? Or done it on your own and found it worked well for you.
We are not set on any one place at all, we are very flexible and will be spending at least two or three weeks in southern France in total overall.

Thanks for any help. I am doing this so far in advance because I need to book our flights soon as we travel on points and need to do so a year ahead.
