Cycling Experiences for Everyone

44|5 began life when Gerry decided to share his favorite roads with visitors to the south of France, and we still love to get out and do guided rides with people eager to see Provence on two wheels, even if it’s just for a few hours.

For something a little longer, our BreakAway Holidays are short-stay custom cycling packages that include accommodation and guided rides. These tours are located in prime cycling areas like Mont Ventoux, the Luberon Valley, Uzès and Girona, Spain.

If you want something more full service, we have week-long, all-inclusive tours in The Alps, Pyrenees and Massif Central; France’s ‘big three’ mountain ranges – plus an incredible week in the stunning Dolomites, in Italy. Whatever your cycling needs are, we’ve got you covered!

We Are Locals

Gerry has lived in the south of France for 15 years and has many more years riding experience in the country and around Europe. We started offering tours because of our love of the bike and specifically when we riding it in France (with Italy and Spain close seconds)!

Gerry and his guides live in Europe full time and are continually exploring new roads to share with you. Our local knowledge, whether cultural, historical or gastronomic, is passed along to you.

Just Like You

We had “real” day jobs before we embarked on this adventure, and we know how difficult it is to indulge your cycling passion and balance work, family and other commitments.  For that reason we’re determined to give you the best overall experience possible when you come to cycle with us.  We want you to get the most out of your cycling vacation, whether it’s a guided day ride or a full week-long tour.

You can be sure to get very personal service each time you contact us, and the same person (Gerry) will be taking care of you from first contact until the end of your trip.

More Bike Time

We have designed all our week-long HighRoad Tours in a manner to keep van transfers to an absolute minimum. Whether you ride with us in the French Alps, Spanish Pyrenees or Italian Dolomites, you will probably only have two rides in a vehicle – to the mountains and back.

For shorter tours and guided rides we can usually come to your hotel or holiday home and start riding right from your front door, allowing you more time for tourism, or maybe just relaxing by the pool with a post-ride glass of rosé!
