If we had to describe France in one word, it would be culture. World-class art, Renaissance castles, quaint villages and some of the best food and wine in the world are just a few of the things France has to offer. And on top of all that, there is gorgeous rural landscape across the country ideal for biking and a chance to get away from it all.
France is a fairly liberal country, and members of the LGBT community have many rights. Although same-sex marriage has not been legalized, openly gay individuals are allowed to serve in the military and apply for a registered domestic partnership. There are many gay bars and communities in main cities in the country.
France can be enjoyed at any time of the year, but many people swear that spring is the best time to visit. For cycling trips, we recommend visiting in the spring/summer.
