Lovers of history and nature-sculpted spaces, hop on your bike to explore Dordogne. In the Vézère and Dordogne valleys, small roads take you to castles, rupestrian painted caves, troglodyte villages, forests and vineyards. Enjoy the liveliness of historic towns and quiet of the countryside and itineraries. Périgord is a varied and hilly region we recommend you cycle through.
A vast rural area with a huge heritage, Périgord reflects the country’s history. With a diverse geography and geology, Périgord is represented by 4 colors, which correspond to 4 touristic destinations:
Dordogne has many historical villages. Connected by an important secondary road network they make it a beautiful region to cycle through! You will enjoy these small roads among valleys and hills, taking you to vineyard, forests, manors and castles.
Prehistoric men probably chose to settle in the fertile lands of the Dordogne Valley for the climate, as it is pleasant all year round. Winters are mild even if it is not unusual to see snow. Spring offers more rain yet temperatures are pleasant for cycling. Summers are hot, with peak of temperatures that can go above 35°C (95°F)! We would avoid going there in August. It is the busiest month and prices are at their highest! Prefer traveling in September and October. These quieter months offer quite a lot of sunshine and ideal temperatures for cycling.
It is difficult to get around everything there is to explore in one bike trip in Dordogne. You might especially want to stop and discover:
It is one of those destinations where you can cultivate yourself and rest under the midday sun. It is a good place to live in. The light will fill you up with positive energy, and gastronomy enchant you. Famous for its foie gras production, restaurant chefs prepare and serve it in all forms, classic to the most original versions. You can accompany these dishes with local wines that combine perfectly with it ! Moderatley of course ! The bike will do the rest!

Hi David, Geoff and I are now back in Canada having thoroughly enjoyed our cycling trip. The bikes were excellent and we did not have any mechanical issues with them. They were a joy to ride. The daily distance was perfect for us as well. The paniers were also great and provided enough room for our daily needs. The accommodation was excellent and our bags were always ready when we arrived. We also took in many of your suggestions for places to eat and they were great recommendations. We ate well over the week with wonderful seafood. Thanks also for your assistance in getting us to Saint Malo and for assisting us retrieve our passports !! (...) Thanks again for a great week and all the best. I would recommend Abicyclette to others. Prudence (08/2018)

It has been an excellent experience. Totally raw with the bicycles, everything was organized so well (bicycles, housings, local information to eating) that we enjoy every moment of the tour. The explanations of the first day on the part of the guide us turned out to be very useful and to know that always you could rely on the organization it allowed us to enjoy the trip. The tour, on there having no been rolled traffic, is most indicated for people that as us it cannot circulate in road with the bicycle. The way of sirga that accompanies on the channel of Nantes Brest is of a spectacular beauty. It seems of another time, to admire the flowers that adorn the exclusas of the Channel, the villages that you are, a marvel. What more we estimate : All the explanations the day of delivery of the bicycles and of the documentation. The transport of suitcases and last day the taxi up to the village where we had to catch the bus. We come to France without having anything organized absolutely. (09/2017)
