About the tour:
Bordeaux is renowned around the world for its premier wines but still remains a relatively quiet
destination for cyclo-tourists, however this is beginning to change as awareness grows about this incredible region.
Recently awarded the most beautiful city in France, Bordeaux will be our base for 3 nights as we explore both the city and its nearby wine regions. This short tour is designed to give you the chance to ride the best routes of the region and tour the top wineries of the area along with dine at unique locations off the main tourist trail.
If you are joining our Classic Cols of the Pyrenees tour it will also provide a great way to settle in to France and get to know your Trek Madone.
All components of the tour have been personally selected by your local guide who lives in Bordeaux and
rides the roads year round.
