ORGANIZED BIKE TOUR AND WINE TASTING!

 

WITH FLORIAN FROM “BOURGOGNE EVASION”

 

I know, you will immediately think that cycling and wine tasting are not compatible…or that cycling is too hard for your perception of what should be a holiday.

But I can tell that this concept is really great fun guaranteed and open to “softies” :-) ! For the full day trip, the trick is that the minibus takes you to the top of a hill, so the ride is going down all the time…easy !!

 

FLORIAN, YOUR BIKING AND WINE TASTING EXPERT GUIDE

Florian is an official cycling guide. He has a very good knowledge of the area and a passion for our region of Burgundy. Florian speaks very good English. He is a very friendly and helpful person and his cheerfulness will contribute to make your day great fun! Florian has a very good knowledge of Burgundy wines and wine tasting, so he will be also a good guide during wine cellar stops.

He prepared these bikes and wine tasting excursions especially for our guests, and he has a mini-bus to transport you from your Kasteliades Château to the cycling destination.

 

SUN GUARANTEE

Since Florian accompanies his tours personally, there is no room for more than one group per day. This full day trip is very successful so we advise you to book several months in advance if possible. You benefit anyway from a “SUN GUARANTEE”. If the days before the planned trip there is a rainy weather forecast, then the trip will be either changed to another day or cancelled with absolutely no costs for you.

 

CHILDREN/TEENAGERS

Children are allowed from the age of 10. Specific bicycles are available for them. A discount of 10% on the adult price is granted to children and teenagers between the age of 10 and 16 included.

Very young children who can seat in a baby or child seat on a bicycle are permitted. Please ask more information about this.

 

HALF DAY TRIPS

Florian organizes as well various half day trips which do not include lunch and transfers. For example there is one starting from the Tourist Office in Beaune at 2pm lasting 3 hours. You can get more information about this on Bourgogne Evasion Website and by contacting Florian with your requirements.
