Burgundy Bicycling — Trip Overview

“The Land of Good Living ”
Bicycle amongst the land of full-bodied reds and supple white wines, the endless rows of vineyards, the green rolling hills, the wooded slopes, and the grazing Charolais cattle on a bountiful generous land; just some of the images evoked when one thinks of Burgundy.
Burgundians are also faithful to the traditions of earlier generations, with a warm and generous hospitality for the visitor--here, a guest eats and drinks very well indeed; thus bringing honor to the host's table. In the spirit of the local traditions of hospitality, we bring you the best of Burgundy.

Burgundy biking

Days 1-2: Le Gran Cru

Daily bike rides from one world renowned wine producer to the next. Stop and raise a glass in a dark cool wine cellar such as the 12th-c Chateau du Clos de Vougeot. Enjoy influential Abbey Cîteaux and discover tiny villages associated closer to Napoléon than wine.

Days 3-4: Delicious Liquers and Ancient Cultures

Emerge into a terrain separated by vast fields of sunflower, grain and colzat flowers that create a blazing golden hue, while the forest provides contrast in color and relief. Learn about the ancient Gallo-Roman culture and pause to taste the delicious fruit liqueurs made from local berries.

Days 5-7: Beaune to Cluny Abbey

Meanders through the forests and fields to Beaune, wine capital of Burgundy. Enjoy a private tour of the city and the traditional market. Saone River Valley and the nearby hills of the Cote Chalonnaise inspire contemplation. Soon robust red wine country and soon after, viola, the land of superlative whites. Then explore Cluny and tour the Benedictine Abbey of 909A.D., once the grandest, most prestigious monastic institution in Europe
