France

 

Burgundy Cycling Grands Crus 7 days
Burgundy was once the richest of the ancient duchies in France and continues to exhibit wealth brought about by the popularity of its wine. You'll cycle small vineyard lanes and quiet country roads, passing picturesque villages filled with wine cellars inviting degustations. Food is a passion here and we'll divulge our favourite restaurants, where you’ll enjoy food that is superbly prepared. We have been cycling in Burgundy for over 15 years now, and know the region intimately. From the many Flemish- style chateaux to the extraordinary Hospice de Beaune, the treasures of Burgundy are numerous. Needless to say, this tour is perfect for wine lovers!




Burgundy Cycling Grand Crus 7 daysDay 1
Gevrey-Chambertin. You will meet our area manager on arrival at your hotel and he will set you up on your bikes. There are options for an easy ride on flat terrain through vineyards to the north or for those that want to challenge themselves with some hills, there are moderate climbs nearby. You’ll want to finish the day with a visit the Chateau of Gevrey-Chambertin, with the opportunity to taste their Grand Crus wine. (11 km or 36 km )


Day 2

Gevrey-Chambertin. On your second day here, you’ll ride through the flat farmlands to the Abbaye de Citeaux, where monks still make their famous cheese. You can finish the day with a visit to the Clos de Vougeot, and ride past vineyards including Romanee Conti and other prestigious estates. (40km)

Day 3
Beaune. You’ll make your way south, where you can enjoy lunch at one of our favorite auberges in the region, before entering Beaune, your home for the next two days. You stay at a charming 3-star hotel within the ramparts of the old city, and can dine out at acclaimed restaurants, where the wine lists are as extensive as the menus. (30km)

Puligny-Montrachet. Continuing south, you’ll ride a route which will have you stopping in the famous wine village of Pommard, and then to St. Romain where you can visit tonneliers (barrel makers) to learn this ancient craft.
