With 1000s of kms of cycle routes to choose from, cycling is one of the best ways to explore the Dordogne
France provides excellent terrain for all cyclists. More specifically the roads in/around North Dordogne are mostly quiet and there is a good amount of flat terrain which can suit all skill and levels nicely.
You can plan your route to be as challenging as you wish, however as a rule if you stick to around 30km per day, you will not find yourself too exhausted.The great thing about cycling in the Dordogne is that the distances between towns and villages are relatively short, offering lots of places to break and enjoy the view along the way. A favourite of many visitors is to visit the many hilltop villages to admire the views, do bear in mind that to reach these locations, you must be able to navigate what can be a sometimes a steep climb at times!
If you would rather be safe in the knowledge of the experts, there are tailor made tours and arranged routes which can be organised prior to your stay in the Dordogne, there are many companies offering group trips online, the tourist offices can also help you find something to suit.
