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!

Bonjour, Suite au Week-End, un peu pluvieux, passé ensemble autour des Châteaux de la Loire, merci pour tes efforts et ta compagnie. A une prochaine fois, sans doute... (05/2013)
Hi David Just wanted to mention again what a wonderful trip we had along the Loire in Brittany . We loved the food, and the itineraries were just right (...) Cheers Trevor (11/2018)
Now that we are home and recovering from jet lag we would like to thank you and Davide for making it such an enjoyable trip despite the rain. The routes were very carefully crafted and gave us good views on safe roads and trails. The GPS was very easy to follow (...). The bikes were very good and performed without problem and the panniers and handlebar bags were the best we have encountered. We think that the combination route that we created with your help gave us good variety in the time we had allowed ourselves. (...) We will certainly recommend Abicyclette to anyone interested in seeing Bretagne on a bike. (...) Thank you again for a wonderful trip. Will and Marilyn (09/2017)

In light of assisting you re future clients we would like to make the following comments: - the equipment (bikes, panniers, helmets etc) was excellent, being of very good quality - reliable and well maintained - our introductory session in Brest was excellent: Sebastian gave us his undivided attention and time, ensuring we were comfortable with the equipment, the route, etc - the GPS was great (...) - the accommodation was generally very good (...) We loved Brittany!! and would love to return!! Brittany is beautiful & perfect for a cycling holiday. (...) Cheers Deb (& Michael) (10/2017)
