Announcing Provence, France cycling tours

Dec 01 - 2016

LifeCycle Adventures (, a cycling vacation company specializing in customized private trips, is expanding its destinations to include France’s Provence region.  Provence, France, is a “bucket list” destination for many cycling vacationers. The company is now taking bookings for trips beginning April 2017.

“We are continuing our European expansion efforts based on strong guest demand, and following our launch in 2015 of Puglia and Tuscany in Italy, Provence is a very logical next step,” said Tony Blakey, LifeCycle Adventures founder,”LifeCycle Adventures makes visiting Provence easy, stress free, and most importantly uniquely memorable.”


LifeCycle Adventures’ Provence bike tours are geared towards all level of riders with a diversity of cycling itineraries available. The Provence region is a gorgeous blend of history, culture, and varying landscapes.  The area is littered with abbeys, castles and Roman ruins and village life is still agrarian and slow-paced with outstanding food and wine at its center.  Every turn along the quiet lanes offers fresh vistas: vineyards, olive groves, deep gorges, and fields of lavender, all having provided inspiration for Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Picasso, and Matisse.


LifeCycle Adventures launched in 2004 to provide personalized bike tours in Napa and Sonoma Counties, primarily for couples and small groups. In 2010, the company expanded to offer tours in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and Columbia River Gorge followed by Hawaii’s Big Island in 2012, in 2013 to Washington’s San Juan Islands, in 2015 to Tuscany, Italy, and in 2016 to Puglia, Italy.

Unlike most bicycle-vacation companies that require guests to join a large group on a pre-scheduled tour, LifeCycle Adventures creates custom itineraries for each individual party or private group, with an industry-leading focus on a high level of personalized service both before and during trips. The company’s on-the-ground staff develops daily route maps, arranges lodging, provides on-demand van support, transports luggage and provides bikes – and helps find those “hidden gems” that only locals know about. The company provides private transfers from regional airports to maximize the time guests have for riding.

Pricing varies depending on accommodation choices and length of stay, but commonly ranges from $1,000-3,000 per person. Guests can book a tour by calling 1.888.NOW.BIKE in the U.S. (0800-587-8663 in the U.K.) or visiting LifeCycle Adventures on the Web at
