I hope you’re not starting to get sick of me. My Canadian hiatus has forced me to get busy and suddenly I have lots to talk about.
As I warned you all a few months ago. I will be occasionally promoting some Cycling Languedoc stuff. You’ve all seen our first real tour: High Road Alps. This one is, admittedly, a pretty niche product, as some of you correctly pointed out to me. I heard your cries, so here’s a tour for tout le monde!
The Backroads of East Languedoc is my first self-guided tour, and designed for just about anyone who knows how to pedal circles. Some quick facts:
- ‘Self Guided’ means that you won’t have a guide, but you will have a GPS, maps, all accommodation booked and your baggage transferred every day you are on the road.
- The tour is a 7-day (6 nights) loop, starting and finishing in Nîmes (of course!).
- Highlights includes:
- Aigues-mortes. An awesome walled crusader town on the edge of the Camargue.
- The Camargue. A flat, wild land of bulls, horses and pink flamingos.
- Uzès. The first Duchy of France, with one of the best morning markets in the region.
- Pont du Gard. If you read this blog, you don’t need any description!
- Lots and lots of vineyards!
- Mostly flat-to-slightly hilly riding.
- Rental bikes (unless you bring your own)
- A welcome drink with yours truly at the Hemingway Bar 😉
Lots more information on the tour page, which I’m updating regularly. Thanks for listening!

I’ll point this out to Mrs Tootlepedal.
Many thanks, although it might be too easy for her!
She claims that there is no ride too easy for her.
I don’t hand internet slang out everyday, TP, but that one deserves a ‘LOL’!
Sounds like a lovely way to spend a week, or longer. I have a few questions but I’ll write to you with them once I’ve slept off today’s big ride!
Once you’re breathing comfortably again, I’ll be happy to answer any of your questions, Dr. James.
