France has to be one of Europe's finest cycling destinations and the recent explosion of quality, specially built and signed routes can now be explored with this 160 page, full colour high-quality guide, packed full of crisp 1:200,000 Michelin maps, notes on attractions, route statistics and photos.
The guide covers Southern France between the Loire Valley and the Mediterranean Sea and includes: Euro-Velo 6, which wends its way across the entire width of France on traffic-free and lightly trafficked tracks and roads using the Loire Valley for much of its length. The traffic-free Littoral route along Provence's lovely Mediterranean coast. Countless signed routes in the Alps - some much easier than you might imagine. A quality traffic-free route along virtually the whole of the Atlantic coast.
So whether you are planning lazy day rides around Loire Chateaux or the long-distance trip of a lifetime along the Canal du Midi and the Garonne valley, linking Atlantic and Mediterranean in a French sea to sea adventure, this guide is both an essential pre-trip planner and an invaluable riders' companion.
