Please email [email protected]

Tour length:
3 nights

Level of difficulty:
Moderate

Price:
€225

A long weekend fully supported cycling for women in conjunction with St Antonin Noble Velo in the Aveyron Gorge area of south-west France. All the route planning and maps will be taken care of – all you have to do is turn up and ride in a friendly and welcoming atmosphereSolo riders as well as groups of friends welcome! Routes and distances will be tailored for the group. However the Aveyron is in a (very beautiful) gorge so there is a bit of unavoidable climbing, although the gradients aren't severe. So this weekend probabaly isn't for complete beginners, but you don't need to be super fit either. The weekend is based at Peter and Natalie's St Antonin Noble Velo B&B in the historic village of Antonin-Noble-Val, roughly an hour by car north of Toulouse. Price includes 3 nights' B&B accommodation, evening meal on the first night, fully guided rides. As the B&B is in a great little historic village and there are some nice places to eat locally, we've only factored in one evening meal. There is also a guest kitchen available. If you're not bringing your own bike, we can put you in touch with a rental firm.
