Group cycling holidays in the LoireValley

We’ve delivered many bespoke cycling holiday for groups – here’s a flavour for you!

Big Birthday Bike Tour!

Celebrating a 60th birthday, we welcomed a family of six Australians, who arrived at Le Gue de Ray from their various locations around the world!

We created a memorable week of easy cycling including a special wine tasting event and a day canoeing on the Loire.  Full catering was provided throughout the week including specially selected wines and of course – a massive birthday cake!

Tour de France Visit

In July 2019 we hosted a 70th reunion for 13 old school friends from New Zealand.  The Discovery Tour itineraries were tailored to cater for a mix of cycling abilities and for added interest we added in some extra wine tastings and a lunchtime restaurant meals.

Gourmet Cycling

A group of eight from the USA, who were after cycling and the tastes of the Loire.

The week was spent split between vineyard cycling and Chateau visits taken in the mini bus – including Chateau Chenonceaux.

We provided four course evening meals and two meals were taken at Gourmet restaurants, including a local Michelin one star establishment.  By the end of the week the group were well versed in the local wine making traditions and had a great list of favourite French cheeses!


A holiday with special bike routes for tandem cyclists – these folks cover a lot of miles when they get going!

The guests made the most of the french lunch hours during their rides and we provided light suppers and BBQs in the evenings.

Leisure cycling & relaxation

A mixed group of cyclists and non cyclists so we mixed the cycling with more relaxing activities.

We obliged with some easy local bike routes,  a half day French cookery course, an afternoon of spa treatments and a wine tasting.  One of the non cycling guests spent the week painting in the grounds of Gue de Ray – and left us some beautiful art work!

These guests travelled further afield to the Chateau of Chenonceau, the pretty Loire town of Amboise and the Leonardo da Vinci museum at his former home, Clos du Luce.

Road Cycling Holiday in the Loire

A group of road cyclists and triathletes who just wanted to spend their week cycling, cycling and cycling.

Hearty breakfasts and ‘re-fuelling’ evening meals were the order of the day.

We provided fantastic GPS routes  and let these guests make the most of their time in the Loire Valley.

John & Deb, Western Australia

We booked a cycling holiday as a family event and could not have picked a better location or accommodation.   We all found the daily cycling trips well set out, interesting and capable of being altered to suit individual requirements.   This cycling experience is a not to be missed one.
