French Cycling Vacation

Cycling through France as a “vacation experience” has never been at the top of my “To Do Before I Die” list. But, after reading the latest lyrical waxings on the subject by the Bicycle Gourmet, I just might add it .

Like most of us, I rode a bike as a youngster and teen, but since that first driver’s liscence, bicycle travel has been a pleasant, but distant memory. However, when you visit France, which I have, by car, you can’t help but be impressed by the incredible beauty of the country. Not to mention the genuinely friendly people. Particularly in the country.

And while not everyone speaks English/American, most locals know enough to get you pointed in the right direction. Add to this, the food, the wine and the history, and you’ve got a country not to be missed, no matter how you travel through it.

The French Cycling Gourmet makes a pretty convincing case for selecting the bicycle as your mode of travel in his latest post – French Cycling.
