Activity holidays in France can be fun and exhilarating experiences, whether you are travelling with friends, your partner, your children or by yourself.
Headwater knows that exploring this beautiful country on two wheels really lets you get under its skin, allowing you to get off the tourist trail and find a few hidden gems known only to the locals.
The French countryside is world-renowned for its breathtaking beauty and as you cycle along country lanes you are sure to find that cycling is the best way to truly appreciate those picturesque views.
All you have to do is decide where you want to go – from cycling along the shores of Brittany, or exploring historic Provence to sipping a glass of local wine in Burgundy or sampling the regional cuisine in Loire or Dordogne, you'll find there are plenty of options to choose from.

At Headwater, we will take care of every aspect of your cycling holidays in France – in fact, we will do everything but peddle your bike for you!
After choosing where you want to go and what you believe your own personal cycling grade is, our team will find you a top-quality bike that is best suited to you.
