Recommended cycle tour companies?

Postby alimck » 30 May 2014, 1:34pm

I want to do a guided supported tour in France, ideally to include the Carmargue, starting from Avignon or Nimes or thereabouts and not too challenging re distances and climbs per day. Can anyone recommend a good UK company?

I came across this company 'Freewheel Holidays', which advertises a package that seems to fit your bill.

I don't have any personal experience of the company, but here's a review of one of their other cycling holidays in France that appeared in the Mail.

I'm sure you'll enjoy it ... but I bet in the future you'll want to organise your own trip and tailor make it yourself. It's so much more fun, and a whole lot less expensive. Image

Thanks for that John. I have toured solo though, (64 year old female) but find it a bit lonely!

The CTC have their own Holidays and Tours Company: http://www.cyclingholidays.org/tours/index.php

Take a look at some of these tours and speak to the leaders. Good luck with your holiday hunting.
