Cycling along winding roads amid the hallowed vineyards of Burgundy is joy! For you eyes and tastebuds. Burgundy, we think, has absolutely the best wine and food in France!

This indulgent tour takes a leisurely course from Dijon of mustard fame, through the heart of grand cru terroir criss-crossed by canals and studded with grand châteaux that are set in fields of vines. We visit numerous wineries, tasting a range of exceptional wines and dining on the most deliciously amazing food imaginable.

FULL ITINERARY

DAY ONE DIJON WELCOME RIDE

An easy ride to get the body moving after travelling as we circle through the mesa-like Mont Afrique. Lovely views over Dijon and welcome you to some of the revered ground of French vineyards, Burgundy!
DISTANCE | 32KM | 20MI
ELEVATION | 300M | 1000FT

DAY TWO DIJON TO VOSNE-ROMANEE

An undulating, scenic ride from Dijon to Vosne Romanée that starts with a climb up to Mont Afrique and meanders around the river Ouche before joining the Route des Grand Crus. We pedal past some of the most impressive vineyards and châteaux of the Côte de Nuits.
DISTANCE | 65KM | 40MI
ELEVATION | 800M | 2600FT

DAY THREE VOSNE-ROMANEE LOOP

Today's ride explores the hilly countryside east of Vosne-Romanée. We ride quiet roads through vineyards, fields of sheep and pretty villages before the finish along the Route des Grand Crus via Nuits-Saint-Georges back to Vosne-Romanée.
DISTANCE | 72KM | 44MI
ELEVATION | 1100M | 3600FT

DAY FOUR VOSNE-ROMANEE TO BEAUNE

Au revoir to Vosne-Romanée as we leave the Route des Grand Crus and ride into the leafy wooded hills on the loop ride to Beaune, the 'capital' of the Burgundy wine region.
DISTANCE | 68KM | 42MI
ELEVATION | 1100M | 3600FT

DAY FIVE BEAUNE LOOP

A great day as we explore the Côte de Beaune, heading west from Beaune over a course that is once more a series of ups and downs. It is hard to tire of the Burgundy countryside as each vista appears over the next hill or around the next bend. Rolling vineyards and meadows, gracious châteaux and quaint villages nestled amid the trees.
DISTANCE | 60KM | 37MI
ELEVATION | 1000M | 3300FT

DAY SIX REST DAY

A rest day with options for a short ride, vineyard visits, guided tour of beautiful Beaune and more.

DAY SEVEN BEAUNE TO TOURNUS

Today's route takes us out of the Côte d'Or and into the Saône-et-Loire department, but not before riding through the Grand Cru villages of renown Meursault and Santenay. An undulating course through a landscape of pastures and orchards as well as vineyards. A pair of steeper, hilly climbs before we arrive at our final destination, delightful Tournus.
DISTANCE | 84KM | 52MI
ELEVATION | 900M | 2950FT

DAY EIGHT TOURNUS LOOP

Another beautiful ride through lush pastures rather than vineyards, along quiet roads of the Saône valley. We ride parallet to the river Saône fro the first ten kilometres before cutting cross country to follow the La Seille river in a wonderful loop back to Tournus. A leisurely, undulating route with nothing over 200m.
DISTANCE | 60KM | 37MI
ELEVATION | 400M | 1300FT

DAY NINE TOURNUS LOOP

We've saved the best for last, with a more challenging ride through the hills west of Tournus, dipping into the wine region of Mâconnais. Charming villages, panoramic views and, of course, vineyards!
DISTANCE | 71KM | 44MI
ELEVATION | 1000M | 3300FT

DAY TEN AU REVOIR!

Time to say farewell, until next time!
