Walking Trips and Bike Tours in Western Europe

Cycling tours in Europe have appealed to the travelling cognoscenti for a century. Come and see whay there are such well developed bicycle routes in what is arguably the most civilized place on earth. France and Italy have so many reasons to ride your bicycle or wear your walking shoes that for many, a European bike tour or a walking trip "on the continent" is an annual necessity. Fortunately for us, we discovered its essence decades ago. Come and share what we have learned since we started operating bike tours and hiking trips here in the eighties.
