At Ride25 we love cycling across France and we normally cycle from the UK (Leeds, Manchester and London) to Paris, then we continue our journey from Paris to Geneva which takes in some amazing scenery and beautiful cities.  Have a look at our full Paris to Geneva cycling tour route & itinerary HERE  .

There are of course many ways to cycle across France, and Hannah Reynolds, the co-author of France en Vélo, has shared her own journey in her book, ‘France en Vélo’ in which she shares her adventures of her amazing 1,000 mile route across France from St Malo to Nice.  Even better, Hannah has kindly given all Ride25 followers a 20% discount off her book – a perfect stocking filler for a fellow cycling enthusiast perhaps?

Every year thousands of cyclists make the journey from Lands End to John O’Groats, an end to end journey of nearly 1,000 miles often under grey skies to arrive in wild, wet and windy John o’Groats.  France en Vélo offers a new challenge for these riders, an opportunity to cross the homeland of cycling – France.

A  new 1,000 mile journey takes riders from the Channel to the Mediterranean, St-Malo to Nice, through some of the best cycling roads France has to offer. France is enduringly popular with cyclists from all around the world; it has fantastic food, good weather and great wines plus a cultural obsession with cycling. France en Vélo – St Malo to Nice – offers an alternative to the usual pilgrimages to climbs made famous by Le Tour de France.

Starting in St-Malo on the coast of Brittany the route winds its way through quiet lanes on the banks of rivers, through dramatic gorges and quintessentially French villages before reaching the dazzling glamour of Nice on the French Riviera. Passing through 19 of France’s regional departments and into some of the country’s most striking and dramatic landscapes, it takes riders through the headline regions and the smaller lesser known gems that many routes by-pass. 

The book is not only suitable for hardcore cyclists, it offers tips on amazing places to eat and stay to, you could ride one stage, dip into one of the mini-regional discovery holidays or complete the entire distance. Whether you are a keen roadie, meandering cycle tourist, family on two wheels or simply have an interest in France the book aims to inspire people and home and be a practical companion on the road.
