St Cezaire Ride

The top of the Gorges St Cezaire is 10km from the house. A 3km descent to the bottom of the stunning gorge followed by a 5km climb that takes you to a wonderful village overlooking the gorge. A great place to stop for coffee and explore.

Gourdon Loop

Carrying on past St Cezaire there are a number of ways to get to Gourdon, another stunning hilltop village overlooking Grasse and the Bay of Cannes. It's a more challenging ride at approx 94km, but a fabulous day out when combined with a stop for lunch. The good news is that it's largely downhill on the way home!

 

 

 

Bargemon Loop

A favourite ride is the Bargemon loop. A gentle 56km of relatively flat, largely traffic free riding it takes in the pretty villages of Claviers, Bargemon (lovely stop for coffee) and Seillans. The early part of the ride is along a disused railway line, now a sealed road but originally used for transporting rose petals to Grasse for the perfume industry.

Castellane/Verdon River Loop

This is a challenging ride we often use for early season training, although it can be hot even in May. At 136km the majority of the climbing is on the way out to Castellane, followed by a lovely ride along the Verdon river. There is however a sting in the tail with the climb from Trigance being one to test already tired legs.

 

It a great ride for those wanting to see a wide range of local scenery

Mt Lachens Climb

Mt Lachens is the highest road summit in the Var at approx 1700m. The tough summit climb is accessed via a small road to a weather observatory with virtually no traffic apart from occasional cyclists and para gliders. On a clear day the summit offers a superb 360 degree view of the region from the coast back to the Alps.
