Are these tours guided ?
I personally lead every tour and give interpretation at the points of interest . For a dozen years now, I have been working as a full time, licensed, tour guide in France and Belgium.
How big are the groups ?
The minimum is 2 participants. To be cost - effective we 'd need 6 to 8 riders. Unless we have a homegeneous group ( same level of fitness / people who ride together / school class ) my groups seldomly are larger than 12 people.
Can we bring our own bike , seat, pedals , helmet ?
Your bike will always fit you better than a hired bike. I encourage every cyclist to bring her / his bike when possible. If that is not practical, then you can hire a bike here and bring your seat, pedals & shoes, helmet...
Is there a support vehicle ?
For the 3 to 14 day tours the support vehicle follows us. For the shorter tours we organise the luggage to be transported to the next venue.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
8 weeks before departure I send you a Paypal 50 % deposit invoice to confirm your booking. You can then use your credit card. The balance is due when we start the tour.
When can we plan our tour ?
We are waiting for a change in fortune before we can plan again. Let us know your travel plan and then I can initiate a trip for your party and open to others. Often we create an itinerary to fit your calendar and travel plan.
Can we combine ride & drive ?
Sometimes we use the mini-van to skip a distance between cities. To ride the beaches of Normandy and the vineyards of the Champagne we use motorised transportation from Paris or Brussels to Caen or Reims.
We are a small and very flexible 2 men operation with a dozen years of experience. We create a cycle tour or holiday that fits your level of fitness and meets your specific points of interest.
Please send me your questions or travel plan and I will respond with my suggestions.
