Inquiry Submission By LoveFrenchWine

We are ‘leisure’ cyclists of a certain age (older!). But we do love to cycle on our trips. I understand various companies offer cycle tours but at our pace, we’d probably be best on a private not group tour. Before I look into this, can someone advise how strenuous the rides are and is basic fitness sufficient? We’ll be staying at the Sofitel. If anyone does have any particular good recommendations (or avoid), that would be useful too. Many thanks
