Not as fit as you would like to be? Is your age dictating that cycling is a thing of the past? Do you want to cycle in peaceful country lanes and feel the fresh air whisk past your face again? Then a break at our home, or a tour from place to place, using a power assisted bike, is what we can offer you thanks these truly useful bits of kit!
We live in the least populated part of France and there is an endless network of little roads, lanes and chemins the amble down on one of our E bikes. We offer E bike cycling breaks on a half board basis. We supply all accommodation, the E bike, nourishing breakfasts and 4 course evening meals with wine. Once here, all you have to pay for are your lunches. Except for one picnic lunch provived by us!
Each day, after breakfast, we set of to a scenic spot or place of interest. During each ride you will pass thru some of the quietest roads in France! There are many places to stop for photos along the way as we are in NO HURRY! We will also use some of the old chemins. These are compacted gravel and/or grass lanes used by farmers, walkers and mountain bikers. But, you will rarely see a tractor on these lanes and even rarer are the walkers and riders! Once at our destination, you are free to discover beofre relaxing in a café or restaurant for a snack or a sit down lunch. On one day, my wife and I, will provide a picnic style lunch at a beauty spot some 30 or 40km from base! Do not let these distances alarm you. These bikes will do 90% of the work if you need them to! You can apply as much or as little effort as you please. If you desire a better fitness level by the end of your trip.....then just pedal a little more from time to time.
