On this Provence day trip, the bike ride starts in the charming town of Isle sur la Sorgue, the antiques capital of Provence and a tiny island surrounded by the emerald waters of the Sorgue river. This scenic bike ride heads into a countryside dotted with farmhouses, orchards and vineyards, on small country roads with very little traffic, far from the tourist crowds. 
Your guide will lead you to the perched hamlet of Saumane and the charming village of Fontaine de Vaucluse and its mysterious spring : no one or machine has been able to gauge its depths. You continue towards Cabrieres d'Avignon and Lagnes pass with beautiful views of the Luberon ! On the way, you enjoy a nice lunch in a local restaurant. For those wanting to cover more milage, you can continue towards the spectacular perched village of Gordes and enjoy an olive oil tasting on the way before heading back to Isle.
