French Riviera Cycling FAQ

What is the weather like?

The Southeast of France is one of the sunniest regions in the world during the late spring and summer months! The climate is mild and ideal for cycling, with average ride temperatures ranging from about 15-20°C (60-70°F) in the spring, and 20-30°C (70-85°F) in the summer and early fall.

What kind of clothing should I pack for rides?

Most of the time you will be very comfortable in a jersey and shorts. However, it may be a few degrees cooler in the mountains, and it is easy to get cold during long descents. It is always a good idea to pack arm warmers, a vest, gloves, a neck warmer and a lightweight wind jacket for the spring and summer months. If you get cold easily, you may want to bring leg warmers or knee warmers for the spring and the fall.

What else should I pack?

You may want to bring sunscreen, swimwear, sunglasses, insect repellent, any personal training devices, and personal ride nutrition if there are products you prefer. Please remember to bring any medication you need as well. You should pack sportswear if needed for afternoon activities such as kayaking or yoga. For the spring and fall months, you should pack some warmer clothes and a jacket as the mornings and evenings can be chilly. For the summer months, a sweater or light jacket should be sufficient.
