Ride with us - Stay with us

Welcome to Red Pepper Rides! Stay with us and enjoy a few days road cycling in the beautiful Lot countryside on quality carbon-frame road bikes. Red Pepper Rides offers groups of between 2 and 6 cyclists affordable short breaks with bed and breakfast accommodation in our comfortable, well-equipped Red Pepper Gîte.

The Red Pepper Gîte is also available for self-catering holidays. Please check our booking page or contact us.


Our short breaks are for groups of 2-6 people who enjoy road cycling, whether you're just starting out or are a regular club rider. Our aim is to offer affordable short breaks and to keep it as simple as possible. Cycling in this part of France is great fun and rewarding with quiet roads and varied terrain from relatively flat valleys to rolling hills with a mix of gradients. We plan and lead the routes and provide the bikes, helmets and water bottles. The distance and pace you want to ride is up to you but will typically be 50-80 Km a day with about 4 hours riding plus a stop at a café or a picnic lunch.

Getting here is easy with regular flights to Toulouse or Bergerac from several UK and other European airports. We think most people will prefer to hire their own car or even drive here from one of the channel ports but we can also arrange for you to be met at the airport and transported here and back for an additional charge.

To keep prices as inexpensive as possible, the breaks are based on bed and breakfast accommodation in our well equipped and comfortable gîte with wifi and satellite TV, swimming pool* and outdoor terrace and BBQ area. The gite has a well equipped kitchen and we can also suggest local restaurants if you prefer to go out for an evening meal.

* please note that the pool is not heated but is usually at a comfortable temperature between June and October
