View Map
We will transfer you from Macon to your point of departure.
 
You can choose to climb to the top of Cotes de Brouilly for a magnificent view over the Alps.
  Because of Burgundy's close proximity to Paris, this makes for a perfect choice for business people and tourists on a tight schedule. It begins 90 minutes southeast of Paris in the town of Macon.

The scenery is gorgeous. The terrain is challenging at times! Rewards include magnificent views over the Alps, great food, and exquisite wines!

If you opt for a longer stay in this cycling-perfect part of France, we'll provide you with additional loops.
 
Itinerary
Day 1: Arrive in Macon. Transfer to Creches sur Saone (67 km/42 miles, 1,315 meters/4,320 ft of climbing)

In Macon, we’ll greet you and escort you to your lodgings at your ivy-draped 3-star property. After checking in to your hotel, we will then outfit you with bikes and meticulously go over every itinerary detail before pointing you on your way. You'll follow a route that winds through a scenic landscape checkered with vineyards such as Saint-Verand and Pouilly-Fuisse.
Day 2: Creches-sur-Saone to Belleville (71 km/44 miles, 1,485 meters/4,875 ft of climbing)

Your route will pass the Solutre rock formation, famous for its Paleolithic remains before riding through the landscapes and places that inspired Lamartine, the 19th century romantic poet. You'll eventually pedal into Cluny, home of the Abbey of Cluny. Built in 910, it towers as a monument to Romanesque architecture and church history. Your ride to Villie-Morgon will take you through the world-famous vineyards of Julienas, Saint-Amour, and Fleurie
Day 3: Belleville to Vaux-en-Beaujolais (53 km/33 miles, 1,265 meters/4,150 ft of climbing)

Today's itinerary will take you through the "Moulin a Vent" vineyards and Romaneche where Georges Duboeuf's Wine Museum is located. Visit it or not. The decision is yours. Keep in mind that as a self-guided rider, you enjoy complete autonomy in deciding which sites to pass and which sites to marvel. 
Day 4: Short loop and departure (three options: 29 km/18 miles, 800 meters/2,615 ft - 37 km/23 miles, 1,015 meters/3,330 ft - 69 km/43 miles, 1,735 meters/5,685 ft of climbing)

Your last day's ride will take you through "Les Pierres Dorees" and its magnificent villages made of these "golden stones" before riding back through some vineyards of the southernmost part of Burgundy.
