France has a proud cycling history in large part thanks to the Tour de France bike race that crisscrosses the country every year.
The prestigious event boosted the popularity of cycling in the country as a whole, making France a great place for a cycle tour. This is especially true of the southeast of the country, where the weather is warmer for longer each year than in the north.
One of the most popular routes runs through Luberon National Park, from Avignon to Graveson, Les Baux de Provence and Isle sur la Sorgue. You will take in vast lavender fields, amazing scenery and the village of Isle sur la Sorgue, billed as the Venice of Provence for its canals and riverside location.
In addition to lavender, Provence is famous for its wine.

Follow the Sorgue river and you’ll find plenty of vineyards around Bedoin in the foothills of Mont Ventoux.
This famous mountain traditionally forms part of the Tour de France, and is known as one of its most challenging climbs. Well-trained cyclists can attempt to conquer the summit, at 1,900 meters, but others can stick to the foothills and admire its formidable presence from afar.
