Cycling in Poitou-Charentes

French Village Diaries Cycling Poitou-Charentes France
Cycling in the Marais Poitevin and hamlets of Charente
As a family trying to embrace a little bit of French culture, we have been bitten by the cycling bug and are now the proud owners of padded Lycra shorts and road bikes. We like nothing better than packing a picnic and setting off for the day to follow one of the many marked bike routes around the French countryside.

On this page you will find links to all posts on a cycling theme. Some of these will be cycling book reviews and some will be posts about our days out with photos of the lovely villages and places of interest we see along the way. Our bike rides range from 20km to 80km and usually involve a picnic or beer stop or both. 

Information on cycle routes in Poitou-Charentes can be found on the Bike Hire Direct website and if you are visiting the area and would like to do some cycling they can help out there too.
