We are transitioning this site to our Cycle Massachusetts site, so don't be surprised if the links take you there.

Guided                             Tour Prices and Itineraries
Each year, in Sptember we offer tour in Europe. Our trips are such a great way to travel. We travel as a community with Bruce nominally as leader; making decisions as a group. We can be spontaneous and adventurous and know that we have the support of everyone else. We call this group self guided.

We donít have a local guide, but we do have great maps and lists of places to visit. We are the guides and everyone works together to make sure that we find our way. The roads here are quiet and there are not that many of them, so not matter what, if we follow the signs to our destination, we will be rewarded with great sites and cycling.  For more information, click here.

Self Guided Tours

Tours begin any day of the week.

Please note that we can arrange tours in most parts of France.

So if what you see is not listed here, please e-mail.

If it seems like there are too many options, I like the 3 star the best.  You stay in charming local hotels and the food is terrific! 

Of course, if you have your heart set on eating at Michelin rated restaurants, you can choose one of our Gastronomic tours.  For a more complete description of what a self-guided tour is like, click here.

Group Self Guided Tours

Groups now forming - please email if you are interested..

This is a great option for people who would like to have the support of a group and the adventure of a self guided tour,  

On a group self guided tour, people come together to form their community where some people may speak a little French, other are comfortable changing flat tires, or  map get idea.   It's very much like the comfort of cycling with a group of friends.  Only you are doing it in a grand new place.
