Touring Turesday - Best Cycling Routes in France

Cycling through the French countryside
If you plan on visiting France, check out what tour operators Butterfield & Robinson call the 8 Best Cycling Routes in France. They are all day rides, from 25 to 55 miles in length. All are mapped out on Google Maps, so anyone can access them. Highlights of these routes include:
  • A visit to the historic area of Normandy, where the Allies first landed in France during World War II.
  • Trips through French wine growing regions.
  •  Magnificent Medieval castles
  • Battle sites of the Hundred Years War
  • Ride on a 2,000 year old Roman bridge
  • A loop around the French Atlantic island of Ile de Re.
Of course on any cycling trip to France, you will find many opportunities to sample French food and wine.
