Editorial Reviews

Review

'Written by a cyclist, for cyclists. Each tour has a detailed route description plus maps, lists of campsites and tips on what to take and how to deal with roadside repairs.' (France Magazine / September 2006) 'Having toured extensively through France, it came as a surprise to find how much superb information is contained within this handily-sized guide. There is an excellent set of 8 routes in different areas of France, each well set out in stages easy enough for most cyclists to follow, complete with an altitude graph when there is a climb of some difficulty. This book is not just ideal for planning a first visit, but also to inspire those who wish to explore further afield within the country.' (Cycling World / November 2006)

Format: Paperback
Cycling in France is a fabulous, if sometimes exasperating, experience. The country has an abundance of different landscapes, most of them startingly beautiful. This book provides a handy resource for those cycle tourists ready to sample France's delights. While the maps are very basic, the route descriptions are valuable, providing both a sense of the terrain, and the historical and natural wonders of different communities. Besides, you can easily supplement the book with local maps. One note for cyclists: The book is small but heavy, thanks to rich, quality paper, and you might want to think about either tearing out the appropriate sheets for your area (yikes!) or photocopying those pages. If you're chugging up some alp or pedaling through the Central Massif, you'll want to be as free of unnecessary weight as possible. But the rewards of cycling in France - formidable!

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Kindle version that I bought has no overview maps to get a context of different routes and locations. Pent version may (or may not) have this.

Some good information for sure, especially re time of year for each route, but lacking in some specifics I am seeking at this stage of planning from the U.S.
