Because of Burgundy's close proximity to Paris, this makes for a perfect choice for business people and tourists on a tight schedule. It begins 90 minutes southeast of Paris in the town of Macon.

The scenery is gorgeous. The terrain is challenging at times! Rewards include magnificent views over the Alps, great food, and exquisite wines!

If you opt for a longer stay in this cycling-perfect part of France, we'll provide you with additional loops.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive in Macon. Transfer to Creches sur Saone (63 km or 39 miles).

In Macon, we’ll greet you and escort you to your lodgings at your ivy-draped 3-star property. After checking we will then outfit you with bikes and meticulously go over every itinerary detail before pointing you on your way. You'll follow a route that winds through a scenic landscape checkered with vineyards such as Saint-Verand and Pouilly-Fuisse.

Day 2: Creches sur Saone to Belleville (71 km or 44 miles).

Your route will pass the Solutre rock formation, famous for its Paleolithic remains before riding through the landscapes and places that inspired Lamartine, the 19th century romantic poet. You'll eventually pedal into Cluny, home of the Abbey of Cluny. Built in 910, it towers as a monument to Romanesque architecture and church history. Your ride to Villie-Morgon will take you through the world-famous vineyards of Julienas, Saint-Amour, and Fleurie.

Day 3: Belleville to Vaux en Beaujolais (54 km or 34 miles).

Today's itinerary will take you through the "Mouin a Vent" vineyards and Romaneche where Georges Duboeuf's Wine Museum is located. Visit it or not. The decision is yours. Keep in mind that as a self-guided rider, you enjoy complete autonomy in deciding which sites to pass and which sites to marvel.

Day 4: Short loop and departure (two options: 30 km/18 miles or 66 km/41 miles).

Your last day's ride will take you through "Les Pierres Dorees" and its magnificent villages made of these "golden stones" before riding back through some vineyards of the southernmost part of Burgundy.
