We spent a fantastic week in September on a wine lover's tour with cyclebordeaux.co.uk. Not being seasoned cyclists, we did do some mild training beforehand, but were still a little nervous before we started. Our worries were unfounded; we started gently with a long cycling path which led us through countryside studded with chateaux and the occasional and welcome old railway station converted to a pub. We also came across a jazz festival in a field with stalls selling food, gorgeous cheeses and wine; whole families were gathered with bikes in the hundreds - amazing! The remainder of the tour was mostly road based but we were directed through small villages with sleepy squares and through myriads of vineyards waving their luscious grapes as we passed. The terrain was moderate and we managed it surprisingly easily and were gutted when the week was up.
