Enjoy Cycling In The Dordogne

Many guests who visit us here at Dordogne Holiday Barns comment on the lovely rides on offer for those who enjoy cycling in the Dordogne. In fact many come to visit specifically for the cycling.

The hills are gentle, the countryside stunning and the rewards are simply breath-taking for those who venture out on two wheels. And the good news is that you don’t have to be a lycra lover or Bernard Hinault to get out and enjoy the quiet country lanes.

Cycling Les Voies Vertes In The Dordogne

Les Voies Vertes are a network of cycle routes which run throughout France. Although many guests leave the barns here with their map or gps in hand ready to plough their own furrow, another great option is making the most of the existing network of cycle routes – Les Voies Vertes.
