As a guy in deseperate need of a vacation and reading positive reviews about touring in France, I need to get this done for June travel. Questions: good tour company (I don't need/want 4 star hotels), buy a bike there, take my mt. bike (I ride it on charity rides with smooth tires..up to 30-40 miles ok), or rent tour company's bike? I'm thinking 10-12 days and do like the option of resting in a sag van (great time for wine therapy). I have a week to decide a tour and arrange air. Sorry for not being specific, but I'm sure what ever route, I'll have fun. Sincerely, Jim in Sacramento. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer.
