Cycling in the Tarn
This area is a cyclist's paradise, with quiet roads and superb scenery.
The Tour de France passes through the region every year and there are many challenging climbs for the keen amateur, as well as less strenuous outings for those that prefer their rides a little more 'chilled'.
There are a number of cyclosportives in the area, and we can organise entry and support if you wish to compete. 2017 saw the UCI Grand Fondo World Championships pass by our front door. Forget the Pyrenees, we have the scenery, the hills, the history, and the wine!
Having the Gresigne Forest on our doorstep makes Meric an ideal training base for triathletes, and runners. We can also arrange for open water swim practice with our local Triathlon Club in Albi.
Montauban is about 40 minutes away from us, with a new 50m outdoor, heated pool.
We offer 3 or 4 day breaks during the cooler months of April, May, September, and October. All rides can be accompanied and routes are gauged according to the experience and fitness level of the group.
We can accommodate groups of 4-6 people in 3 twin rooms. Two rooms have ensuite shower rooms and one room has a separate, adjacent bathroom for private use.
Prices start at 100 euros per person, per day, based on two people sharing.
Twin room and shower room ensuite or private bathroom.
Daily, accompanied rides departing from, and returning to, Meric.
'Broom wagon' service, if required.
Snacks on return to base.
4 course evening meal including wine.
Toulouse Blagnac is our nearest airport. We can offer a free bike transfer service from Toulouse Blagnac airport or Matabiau train station, so you would only need to get yourselves to us, we will pick up the bikes.
If you don't wish to bring your own bike, we can arrange for you to hire a quality road bike with one of our reputable partners.
