Mature Cycling Tours - Links Bike Tours

Mature Cycling

Attention Baby Boomers.  Links Bike Tours believes that “It’s never too late to be young again”.  You are a mature rider if you are an active person 50 years or plus who wants to be challenged but also would like to “stop and smell the roses” along the way.  

We would like to cater to your needs as a mature biker in any way we can.  Our goal is to help you enjoy an authentic experience of cycling in Provence.  Do you have a special anniversary or birthday to celebrate?   Have you always dreamed of biking through vineyards and sampling some of the finer Cote du Rhone wines?

Some advantages of  Mature Cycling with Links Bike Tours would be riding with whom you wish to ride and challenging yourself, as you want each day.  It is up to you to decide which of the many suggested routes you take.  


We have cycled in Provence for 13 years and feel we know the area quite well.  We have cycled Mont Ventoux, the Giant of Provence, many times and can help you do so too if this is a goal.  We will share our expertise with you and provide maps and routes with comments on degree of difficulty.  


For your partner who does not ride, we do encourage that you rent a car for ease of getting around.  They could shop in one of the many markets, prowl around local perched villages, hike the local hillsides, sit by the pool and read.  The possibilities are endless.  Provence is so rich in culture and history you will want to experience as much as you can. After you have ridden the route and miles you want to ride, you could meet up and share stories.  



"Visiting Provence with Links Bike Tours was one of my most memorable vacations. As a beginning rider I was wondering how I would fare cycling in the South of France.  My concerns were met with kindness and help.  I ended up riding farther and faster than I ever thought possible with individual attention from Link and Kathy, challenging routes that fit my ability, guidance and back-up when needed.  The routes allowed time to enjoy the various villages, beautiful scenery and gorgeous countryside. Burning all those calories allowed me to enjoy delicious local cuisine at inspired choices of restaurants.  Even better than the food was the camaraderie of people on the tour who have become life long friends. Thank you so much."
