We cycled The Vineyards and Villages of Burgundy trip with our classic tandem - which really did prove to be double the fun on a bicycle made for two!
The scenery was spectacular - switching from pedalling through some of the most famous vineyards in the world to scenic villages where each one was prettier than the previous one, to beautiful canal paths and magnificent chateaux.
It was made all the more spectacular by the warmth of the sunshine - and the friendliness of the locals we met en route, many of whom enjoyed the spectacle of our tandeming efforts!
With most of the route along designated cycling paths, it felt very safe and the area is perfectly set up for cyclists - with the paths mainly being of a much higher quality than experienced in the UK.
The organisation was brilliant - particularly the ease of the luggage transfer - which allowed us to enjoy the cycling and the quaint individual hotels which all offered a warm welcome and were fully geared up for cyclists.
