SYKKELFERIE I FRANKRIKE

PÅ EGEN HÅND I LANGUEDOC

På tide å planlegge årets sykkelferie i Frankrike? Selv om Ryanair ikke lenger flyr fra Rygge til Beziers, er det fortsatt fullt mulig å komme seg til sykkelområdene i Languedoc. For eksempel kan du fly til Barcelona, og så kjøre nordover med leiebil eller ta toget til Narbonne.

Boken min, «Sykkelferie i Frankrike», selges fortsatt. Du kan enkelt bestille den på www.dreyersforlag.no. Boken beskriver 10 sykkelrunder i Minervois-området og 10 i Corbières, begge med en fast base.

Her får du en oppdatering av overnattingsmulighetene i Bize-Minervois, på engelsk. Bosteder i Lagrasse i Corbières finner du på www.lagrasse.com og på Tripadvisor.
