An organised cycling tour is the perfect way to combine a love of the outdoors with a unique insight into the historic sites of The Great War. Not to forget fine French food, amazing attractions and stylish stops.

A visit to the many memorials, graveyards and historic sites of The Great War bears comparison. Each visitor seeming to understand, without explanation, that these are places of quiet remembrance; their tranquillity today in stark contrast to the events they commemorate. Silent families wandering amongst the graves of the fallen, each no doubt mentally marking a familiar surname – their own name, a friend’s; wondering if they would have returned had they been born a century ago.
