Look no further - B&R assembled a private trip for 18 of us from Prague to Vienna and they nailed it. Nice job.

Accomodations

L’Hôtel de Beaune

This beautiful hotel is housed in a 19th century home and is ideally located within steps of the shops and restaurants in the historic centre of Beaune. The courtyard is a great spot to unwind over a glass of wine, and the terrace leads to an incredible view over the city’s medieval rooftops. Set in the heart of Beaune, L'Hôtel is renowned for its privacy and the personalized service.

Abbaye de la Bussière, La Bussière-sur-Ouche

This boutique hotel is a medieval castle that was once a Cistercian monastery and later a hunting lodge. Now, the hotel offers luxurious accommodations within an 18-acre park. Emmanuel Hébrard, the young talented chef of the property’s restaurant, earned his first Michelin star in 2009.

Additional Information:

Activity Level:

Enthusiast

The first four days of the trip alternate between relatively flat routes and some hilly rides. Distances range from 27 to 44 km (17 to 27 mi.) with options every day, including the Century Ride of 100 km. In general, we follow small, quiet roads through vineyards, farmland, forests and charming towns. Burgundy has been credited with having the best biking, not just in France, but the world. This is no small claim, but it has been asserted time and again by B&R guides and travellers alike.

Gear:

The Bikes

You can’t enjoy a great biking trip without a really great bike. On this trip you’ll be riding a customized hybrid or a racing bike with drop bars. We also equip you with handlebar bag, helmet and water bottle.
