Riding abroad is a great big adventure, and is one of Visordown's biking must-dos. The nearest abroad we’ve got is France and, as luck would have it, it’s one of the best places in Europe to go and ride a bike. France has a disproportionate percentage of awesome roads, the weather, if not exclusively fantastic, is predictable, and the French love bikes. Many Brits have a Francophobic streak running deep, but put that aside: go to France on a bike and they’ll love you for it.
There’s more to Europe than France, but as a destination for the first time two-wheeled foreign explorer it’s the one we’d recommend.
