1- It's accessible to everyone
Contrary to conventional wisdom, it is not necessary to have the habit of riding every weekend and to be over-trained in order to be able to leave and enjoy it. You build your own itinerary, do not hesitate to make short steps, a few dozen kilometers per day. You will enjoy more and you will have time to make the most of the region visited. You can also decide not to pedal every day. In addition, choose a region and a level of difference adapted to your cycling needs, choose the Canal du Midi to the Pyrenees if you are traveling with children for example. What matters most is to make a itinerary at your own pace, according to your desire. Your only goal should be to enjoy yourself. Electric bikes can also be a very good option for those who want to lengthen distances without taking the risk of getting tired.
2- The journey, at a new pace
By bike, you travel at a different speed. No more beautiful landscapes can be seen through the window of a car or a train. On your bike, you literally immerse yourself in these landscapes, stop, admire yourself, observe the local fauna and flora and take your road back when you want. And unlike walking, cycling allows you to travel long distances with relatively little effort, you will not be bored! The bike ride is a return to the basics, without a head start and to its own tempo.
3- Many possibilities in France alone
You don’t have to go to the other end of the world to get away from it. France is full of surprises, with its rich heritage, the infinite diversity of its landscapes, the diversity of its population. What could be more attractive than rediscovering it with a few pedals. Whether you want to get lost in the countless vineyards, taste the gastronomic specialties, visit cultural monuments, you will always find bike connections to connect the towns and villages to each other. The multitude of motorways, green paths and cycling paths allow you to easily plan a tailor-made adventure.
4- Your body will say thank you
When you pedal several hours a day, it keeps you going! Even taking relatively short and quiet steps, you spend every day and progress every day. You will see, every day you will drive a little more, a little better than the day before.
5- The planet will say thank you too
To move forward, you will need a little sweat, a lot of water and a good dose of food. The cyclist produces a much lower greenhouse gas emission than other tourists.
6- Your wallet will also thank you
A bicycle trip can be adapted to all types of budget. It is possible to think about your stay according to your wallet. You can choose to sleep in a comfortable bed in an atypical guest room or spend the night in a tent. You can sit in the sun for a picnic in the middle of the sunflowers or choose a good hot dish in a restaurant after a morning of pedaling. You can decide to transport your own bicycle on the train or prefer the comfort of the rental on site to simplify the trip. Everything is imaginable for your bike trip!
7- Adventure and unplanned adventure are on the agenda
Whatever the itinerary and the planning of it, by bike it is very easy to change your mind, to slightly deviate your route. Do you like that little path? What are you waiting for? Did someone meet you boast about the beauty of a castle a few kilometers away? It's just a few pedals. In addition, bicycle travelers are surprised and many curious people will find out about your trip, ask questions and this only makes your adventure more wonderful.
The only thing we didn't tell you, which can be a brake at the beginning is that ... you will want to go back! A bicycle trip calls for another. Once you have returned home, you will remember the landscapes covered, the encounters made and the miles swallowed you will want to plan the next one!
