Cycling in France, for all levels, families too! A presentation by Gary Kraut. Wednesday, Feb 13, 7:30 

Biking in France for all types of riders – A lecture by Paris-based travel writer, ride leader and Mercer County native Gary Kraut

France is one of the world’s top cycling destinations thanks to the many ways in which biking at all levels can be combined with visits to castles, vineyards, markets, and historical sights and monuments. The stunning natural landscapes, bike-friendly roads and culture, and fine meals at the end of the day make every ride memorable.

In this illustrated lecture, Gary will explain how to match your cycling level and travel rhythm with your desire to explore the pleasures and treasures of France, whether on a one-day bike excursion or several days of freewheeling or on a longer destination-based cycling adventure.

Gary will cover routes of interest to easy-going leisure bikers, to family with teens, and to experienced road cyclists seeking challenging rides, and take us to the regions around Paris, the Loire Valley, Normandy, Burgundy, and Provence.

After the lecture join us for light refreshments when you’ll have the opportunity to speak with Gary directly about your own travel plans and explore potential for a Sourland Cycles-sponsored biking trip in France later this year or in 2020!
