Not as fit as yesteryear? 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.
Each day, after breakfast, you can set off in any direction you like. We can recommend the routes and provide maps. 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 you are in NO HURRY! We can suggest nice places for a quiet lunch.
Do not let distances alarm you. Most lunch destinations will be no mre than 30-35km away from our home. 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.
