CYCLING IN BEAUTIFUL PLACES

Twitter

La Vie en Vélo is a UK (Kent)-based cycling trip company who specialise in helping riders ride in lovely parts of Europe, especially France & Belgium.

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 or at your arrival airport and take them ahead of you, to Mont Ventoux, or the Alps, or the Pyrenees, or to our own place in the Dordogne, or to see the Tour, or the Classics, or maybe to try a hidden gem. You can jump in our 9-seater with us or for, say, a long weekend or you could fly or take the Eurostar and we'll meet you there with your bikes.

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 them thoroughly while they 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 a visitor’s stay, in our own 9-seater VW Transporter with our custom-fitted box trailer to keep your bikes safe and sound.

ACCOMMODATION

Comfortable and relaxed accommodation for up to eight people in our own house 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. Or other hotels carefully selected for character and charm.

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 for a wide range of loops and one-way rides to, from and around the cultural and natural highlights of this idyllic region, 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 siteseeing.


 
We can also arrange and support cycling trips to other parts of France and the UK, or maybe even further afield.

We can provide logistical support for bike races, or your long-distance bike ride,
or support your trip to see and ride stages of the big bike races in northern Europe.

La vie, c’est comme un 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.
