TRIP DESCRIPTION

As a gourmet cyclist, you'll love this tour! We'll take you through Drôme and Provence (the land of lavender) to meet some colorful locals, in love with their culinary heritage, who keep the tradition of "bien manger et bien boire" alive and kicking!

This is a wonderful bicycle trip to be done at your own pace… with just the right number of hills to justify a gourmet dinner!

After your daily ride, a charming little hotel or a quaint Bed & Breakfast will welcome you. Your next duty is to sit down, relax, and savour a wonderful dinner prepared with love, accompanied by a tasty local wine.

Our route notes list a wide choice of local producers of all kinds: a dairy farm owner and maker of Picodon, an abbey that keeps its liquor recipe secret, a butcher who cooks the "Caillette de Chabeuil," a proud wine-maker of "Clairette de Dié," and many, many more...
