Dreaming of planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Europe? Cycling in France is the perfect way to soak up the scenery. You move fast enough to appreciate the changing landscapes (lavender fields, rolling vineyards, hilltop hamlets) but slow enough so that you can take in all the exquisite details. The bike is the ideal vehicle, offering a window to the idyllic French countryside. A cycling trip also allows visitors to live like the locals: stopping for wine tastings with the winemakers, strolls through cobbled alleyways, chats at village cafés…
