Cycling France - Tour Upper Provence (Option A)
This six-day, self-guided bike tour allows you to explore the heart of Provence at your own pace. Running from/to Avignon but with the cycling beginning in either Bédoin or Mazan and ending in Roussillon or Gargas, this bicycle tour features relatively short daily rides, allowing you to fully experience Provence rather than just see it as you pass by. Provence is a wonderful region to cycle and this tour really does immerse you into the delights of the area.

What's the tour like?
One needs a fairly good fitness level to fully enjoy this extraordinary trip: Although challenging Ventoux can be skipped, some sections involve some climbing.
This tour can only be done by cyclists who can comfortably cover 45 to 50 miles (70-80km) per day with some climbs! Note, however, that the toughest of all (Ventoux!) is optional — an alternative route is possible via the scenic Gorges de la Nesque.
Can I have my own room?
The tour price is based on two people sharing a room. If you'd like your own room or are traveling solo then a single supplement applies.
What do you mean by Option A?
There are two options for this tour. Option A is the default price and includes 3 nights in 3-star properties and 2 nights in 2-star properties.
Option A+ has the same itinerary and routes but the difference is that accommodations will be in more premium properties, thus making the tour price more expensive. It includes a night in a 5-star hotel, 2 nights in 4-star properties and 2 nights in 3-star properties.
