Diverse Directions: Self-Guided Cycling Tours in France

Cycling Tours in the Provence Region

Located in southeastern France along the Mediterranean coast, Provence has the dazzling light that inspired the Impressionists, numerous remnants of its Roman past, acres of vineyards and olive groves, villages constructed of local stone that cause them to meld beautifully and effortlessly into their settings, and a vast variety of landscapes.

During the course of a few day's cycling you'll cross semi-desert scrubland, lush green valleys, towering mountains and deep gorges, In short, the scenery is awesome, and often dramatic.

The terrain in Provence is quite hilly in general, though long stretches of flat or gently rolling hills provide regular relief for the cyclist.

Access to Provence is made very easy by France's superb high-speed rail network. Trains leave both Paris and Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport for Avignon very frequently and make the journey in 3 to 4 hours.
