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.
