Bordeaux - Cologne 2018

Charity Tour 2018 - From Bordeaux to Cologne

19 - 25 August 2018: A wonderful tour even through the best wine-growing regions of France in largely sunny weather.

2018 we cycled for six days through the most beautiful wine regions of France. The tour started in Bordeaux and then led via Saint Emilion into the Dordogne valley through Bergerac, the Perigord to Soulliac, from there northwards and the Massif Central to Clermont-Ferrand.

From there we cycled mostly "flat" towards Burgundy, first in the valley of the Allier and then along the Canal du Centre, until we crossed the vineyards from Santenay, continued via Beaune and reached Nuits-Saint-Georges, where we changed to the bus that took us to Liège. From there we cycled again across three countries to Cologne Cathedral at the end of the tour.
