Prehistoric, Gastronomic, Fantastic Perigord!

Cycling, history, and gastronomy bring people to visit this lovely part of France-- straddled between the Lot and Dordogne rivers.

We love this region...our top reason being that we love ducks! And Dordogne is the land of duck: it's Duckland, it's Duckdogne. Duck, goose, and wine are the dietary staples for most people there (who surprisingly enjoy the longest life expectancy of all regions in France!)

As one can read in the Rough Guide: "This is the land of duck and goose, of foie gras and truffles, of succulent lamb, smoky-sweet goats' cheeses and a rainbow array of fruits and vegetables to be sampled in simple country inns or in elegant dining rooms dedicated to haute cuisine. The choice of wines is no less intoxicating..."

Of course, there is more: medieval castles, natural areas of striking beauty, and caves adorned with 25,000 year old paintings and "fresh" footprints seemingly left yesterday by kids that date back to the time when mammoth was the meat of choice.

In this unique region, we offer a wide variety of bike trips for riders of all levels. In the "subregions" of Dordogne--namely Perigord (the region of Sarlat) and Quercy (Rocamadour)--we offer leisurely tours that focus specifically on one of them while our more difficult tours cover both areas and beyond.

Treasures of Black Perigord focuses on the “Perigord” area of Dordogne known for its cuisine (duck-based dishes, truffles, etc…), and its many medieval (Sarlat, Domme, etc…) and prehistoric sites (Les Eyzies).

Upper Quercy's Gems focuses on the Quercy part. It takes riders off-the-beaten path to a very scenic and authentic part of Dordogne. The views and the sites are magnificent. Sites include medieval Rocamadour and the impressive abyss of Padirac.

To view both Quercy and Perigord and experience a comprehensive tour of this fascinating region, our leisurely Dordogne's Jewels and Treasures or our more difficult Perigord and Quercy for Avid Riders are highly recommended. Both allow riders to fully experience this unique region's heritage and most famous sites, such as Les Eyzies, Sarlat, Souillac, Castelnaud, etc...

Along the Dordogne and Lot Rivers is a point-to-point trip that takes riders from the medieval town of Sarlat by the Dordogne river to Cahors on the Lot River following a very scenic route. In between, they experience some of the region's most extraordinary sites: Rocamadour, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, the prehistoric cave of Pech-Merle, etc…

If time is of the essence, our Short Escape along the Dordogne river is ideal to sample this region... until you come back for more!

For groups (6 and more), we organize many custom bicycle tours in this area. These can be guided or self-guided, challenging or very leisurely...
