We kick off our second tour in the centre of Provence, the city of Avignon. This region is known for its lavender fields, white-blanketed mountains such as Mont Ventoux, and picturesque ancient villages; it is arguably one of the most beautiful regions of France. Historians, artists, and wine enthusiasts rush to this region for its culture, breathtaking scenery and delicious Provencal gastronomy.

From the experienced cyclist to the weekend peddler, our French Riviera & Provence tour offers an unforgettable experience to everyone with something unique to see down every road!

For the first few days, we ride through petite dry stone buildings and picturesque villages in the hills.

We visit prime landmarks of the region, such as the home of Van-Gough in Saint-Remi, Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, and Mont Ventoux (the monster of Provence).

We see the highlights of Provence before venturing south along the Mediterranean Coast. In the second half of this tour, we visit some iconic spots along the French Riviera, such as St. Tropez, Cannes and Monaco, notorious for their clear beaches, rocky cliffs, warm summer winds and breathtaking views.
