  • Day 1

    Welcome to Burgundy

    Your guides will greet you at the train station in Beaune where the adventure begins. Nestled inside massive 14th-century ramparts, this medieval town is the wine capital of Burgundy. After an essential bike fitting and safety talk, set off on our first scenic spin through the Côte de Beaune, passing the villages of Pommard and Nantoux. Family-style lunch is served at a bar à vin in the center of Pommard. The owner, Fanny, is also a wine producer, which means our meal will be paired with a crisp, refreshing Chardonnay from her own production. Back in Beaune this evening, we’ll indulge in a gourmet Burgundian feast at Le Benaton, a Michelin-starred restaurant.
