Day 1 - 21st September

Lyon to Tournon sur Rhône

Your first day of the ride and the route joins the River Rhône today at Vienne, but the start of the day brings some leg stretchers in to the Isère region, with quiet roads bordered by forests and agriculture. The Rhône in Vendange season will be humming to the sounds of grapes pickers and tractors so we'll enjoy a glass of Côtes du Rhône in the valley at the border of the Drome and Ardèche.

FAQ

Can I make a group booking?

Yes – family members, colleagues or friends usually find that embarking on a group adventure makes it even more fun and rewarding. However, trip places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Can I make any trip private?

All the trips advertised on our website are open to the general public, though we encourage friends, family members and clubmates to come in groups – it makes the experience even more fun and rewarding. If you want a private trip on your own dates, we will arrange one for you through our Bespoke service. This can be on an existing itinerary or to a route that you – or we – create. We usually need seven customers on bespoke trips.
