Gently in the morning, not too fast in the afternoon


Gastrobiking Holidays combine the incredible cycling that France has to offer with the unique food culture that the French have created. They cater for a wide range of cyclists from those who are fairly new to the sport and experienced cyclists who want to enjoy a holiday relaxing and cycling.

Discover the Vercors

Gastrobiking holidays are based in and around the Vercors National Park, between the Alps and Provence in the south-east of France. The area offers a variety of terrain from easy valley rides to challenging climbs through the spectacular gorges of the Vercors.

The cycling season runs from mid-March to the end of October and there are several organised ‘Randonnees’ and ‘Cyclosportives’ held in the area throughout the year.

Alpe d’Huez

For many cyclists, the mention of Alpe d’Huez provokes images of cyclists fighting their way through crowds of cheering supporters on the Tour. It’s a challanging climb and a popular day trip. More>

Dual centre holidays

For a longer holiday you may prefer a multi-centre tour and there are several places we can recommend. We work in close relationship with Veloventoux, who are based near Mont Ventoux. Contact us with your ideas and we can advise accordingly.


Once again we’re organising weeks around the increasingly popular cyclosportives. At one extreme, the Ardechoise is the ultimate in French Bikechic where a range of circuits are suitable for everyone. In contrast, the Marmotte is the ultimate ride from hell, there’s just one circuit which is unsuitable for 99% of the participants. More>
