“Vélo Paradisio” is first of all a cycle tourism hike, opened to everyone, which will take you on the roads throughout Bergerac and Monbazillac vineyards, whatever your level of biking and your experience. For this first edition, three loops have been especially designed :
One 15km loop, which can be done in an afternoon with your family One 40km loop, for biking in family or friends, all day long, with a stop for lunch One 60km loop, for the bravest bikers, all day long, with a stop for lunch
One 15km loop, which can be done in an afternoon with your family
One 40km loop, for biking in family or friends, all day long, with a stop for lunch
One 60km loop, for the bravest bikers, all day long, with a stop for lunch
Starting and ending at the Château de Monbazillac, the loops will be punctuated by breaks to rest, to quench your thirst, to taste terroir products and to enjoy yourselves thinking about the kilometers you’ve made.
Discovering landscapes without hurry, chatting while pedaling, stopping beside the track to take a photograph or just to have a break, remembering our memories, helping and cheering each other on the road… so many things and values that we can share on a bike. The oldest the bike is, the funniest the experience will be!
The rest is what awaits you on Sunday, August, 21st at the Château de Monbazillac !
In order to live the “Velo Paradisio” experience completely, reuse your VINTAGE CLOTHES : trousers and flower dresses, Sunday suits and leather jackets, hats and fascinators, caps and berets, whatever your tastes and what you will find in your wardrobes!
For the BIKE, we recommend you to have a bike before 1987, when the gearbox passed from the frame to the handlebar. If you do not have some, look into your garages, cellars and barns. Ask people around you, a treasure might be at hands!Our mechanics crew will check the state of the bikes and handle the first breakdowns.
