CYCLING IN BEAUTIFUL PLACES

Twitter

La Vie en Vélo helps cyclists to ride in small groups in iconic destinations and to hidden gems around Europe.


Perhaps uniquely, we offer a solution to the bike hire or bike box/bag debate because we will load your own bikes here in the UK and take them ahead of you, whether to

Mont Ventoux

The Alps

The Pyrenees

Our own place in the Dordogne

The Tour de France

Spring Cassics

European sportives

A hidden gem.

 

Some people choose to do one of our organised tours and lots others tell us where they would like to go: 

custom trips

 

Already on our calendar for 2017 are trips to Mont Ventoux & Provence (3 times), the Alps, the Pyrenees, the Dordogne, Flanders, the north of England, Paris and Amsterdam (twice).

Our calendar

 

You can jump in our 9-seater with us or for, say, a long weekend you could fly or take the Eurostar and we'll meet you there with your bikes and bags to maximise your time on your bikes.

Getting there - our specialism


We are already establishing strong, long-term relationships with clubs and groups of cyclists and go where they want to go. We are open to all your own trip ideas and can help your group get where they'd like to ride, and then to support you thoroughly while you ride. 

TRANSPORT

Transport for riders and bikes, including to and from the UK (no flights, no bike boxes, no airports, no extra charges!), and vehicle support throughout your trip, in our own 9-seater VW Transporter with our custom-fitted box trailer to keep your bikes safe and sound.

ACCOMMODATION

In hotels carefully selected for character and charm and in our own house for up to eight people in the impossibly tranquil countryside of a quiet corner of the Dordogne, surrounded by hundreds of kilometres of deserted roads set in an idyllic, rolling landscape. 

FOOD & DRINK

Delicious, locally-sourced, homemade food and drink - on site, by the roadside, in the saddle and in local brasseries and restaurants – no need to buy or plan anything if you don’t want to. We believe that a well-fed cyclist is a happy one and we spend a lot of time making sure that food is a highlight of your trip.

ROUTES

Routes, advice, maps and detailed directions on paper, on your device or from us standing at road junctions, for a wide range of loops and one-way rides to, from and around the cultural and natural highlights of Europe & Belgium, all tailored to meet individual needs. We’ll even guide you if you want (and we can keep up)! We carefully adapt routes and advice to suit the type of cycling you are looking for whether it's race training or sit-up-and-beg sight-seeing.

La vie, c’est comme une bicyclette.

Il faut avancer pour ne pas perdre l’équilibre.
Life is like a bicycle. You need to keep going forward to keep your balance.
