Itinerary

After you arrive in Bordeaux (at the train station or airport) and settle in to your hotel, in the heart of the historic city, our Trip Manager will meet with you, check the fitting of your bikes, and go over your trip packages with you. You’ll want to take some time to explore Bordeaux itself. This port city, that has been the centre of the Bordeaux wine trade since the 8th century, and its historic centre is also a UNESCO heritage site, with its 18th century stunning architectural facades, and the fully restored Port des Lunes. We leave you to find dinner in one of the dozens of excellent restaurants.

A truly pretty ride through the slightly rolling countryside from Bignac awaits you for your final day. The ride brings you by the welcoming Chateau de Bridoire – a privately owned castle (the owners still live there) with beautifully furnished rooms to visit, as well as a vast park; be sure not to miss explorations in the labyrinth! The route continues from there through more and more vineyards to bring you into the village of Montbazillac. The town is quite pretty, with its church and small local restaurants and cafés, but it’s renown comes from the delicious sweet wines that are made there. Stop for a visit and tasting at the Chateau Monbazillac, or any of the neighbouring local winemakers, before continuing onwards to return to your hotel for your final evening.

After a final breakfast at the hotel there are easy connections out of the Bergerac train station for your further travels. Bon Voyage !
