It’s obvious when you think about it, the country that hosts the world’s biggest cycle race is going to be a great place to ride a bicycle. Bikes are welcome practically everywhere in France and there are thousands of kilometres of marked cycle routes throughout the country with new routes opening every year.

Virtually every town and village has made provision for cyclists too.  There are cycle lanes alongside many roads, dedicated cycle tracks into and around larger towns and bike parking facilities.
