The city of Nice had a compelling reason to use the hashtag #nicecyclingparadise for promoting the 2020 Tour de France start – in fact, there are countless reasons, each more enticing than the last, as you start to uncover the vast array of cycling opportunities this region has to offer.
However, it’s not just about the sheer number; it’s the incredible diversity of cycling experiences awaiting you. From epic, high-altitude climbs to leisurely rides along the coastline, from journeys to the Italian border to thrilling gravel adventures, and from conquering well-known mountain passes to uncovering hidden, uncharted paths.
Throughout our expedition, we’ll conquer all the iconic routes that professional cyclists frequent during their season preparation. We’ll venture into secluded valleys, meander through enchanting medieval towns, partake in sailing excursions, savor exquisite culinary delights, and have the privilege of welcoming esteemed guests.
Our gracious hosts are none other than Café du Cycliste, a globally renowned apparel brand. We’ll enjoy a coffee or two at their shop, which will serve as the starting point for some of our rides. Most importantly, the founder and his team will ensure that we experience the Cote d’Azur like true locals.

We focus exclusively on bespoke private trips and events. We design the experience with you so each one is different.
Customisation and flexibility are at the core of BIKO because no client is the same and all our organization pivots around it. But what all our clients have in common is that they value privacy so we operate unbranded so not to attract attention.
BIKO cooperates with the industry’s best bike and apparel producers like for example Festka which is the most exclusive road bike out there to date.

BIKO attention to detail and their insider knowledge made our trip memorable. 5 stars and worth every cent.
There is no better way to see a country than on a bike and with the guys from Biko Adventures. We just finished the Prague-Vienna Advanced Road Bike Holiday. I cannot say enough positive things about the trip and our guides. Each day was an adventure with special sites and surprises all orchestrated by them. The mileage was very manageable with plenty of time for lunches, drinks and some site seeing.
Filippo's attention to detail and ability to scout a picturesque, safe and a fun route was spot on. BIKO exceeded our expectations and created a challenging but doable ride that incorporated our passion for local culture, delicious food and superior accommodations. Biko takes the experience vacation to the next level and more importantly creates life time memories.
