Bike Werkx

We are a cycling friendly bike tour company based in Oppéde, France in the very heart of Provence. There is no better place to make yourself feel at home than with a cycling holiday based at our very own Jas de Garrigue. Come relax and enjoy yourself on one of our many bike holidays.

Our concept is based around these three pillars: riding, living and enjoying food and drink. We feel that if you can enjoy these three life staples, you’ll be sure to live healthier and longer.

Our accommodations include all ensuite gîtes with private terrace, amenities include use of the fabulous pool and the pool house deck area making it the perfect spot for a late afternoon apéro get together. Our guests also get use of BBQs, a lit pétanque court, a dedicated bike workshop/cleanup station and finally a fleet of great bikes from Focus including e-bikes. Most importantly you can tap into our local knowledge for rides, restaurants and historical must see venues galore. We are located smack on a 30k long dedicated car free bike path which is suitable for all ages and abilities. For avid cyclists looking to test their skills, we have quite an interesting array of gravel rides in the area that are sure to make any keen cyclist drool with envy.

 
 
 

About Us

Located in the heart of stunning Provence - the aptly named Triangle d’Or at the foot of the Luberon National Park. We are a just a bike ride away from all things great, whether it be an amazing ride through the Luberon hills, a typical Provençal meal or a historical visit to one of the many medieval villages in the neighborhood.

Provence is famous for all things great - several books have been written from a year in Provence by….. to movies such as “A good year” staring Russel Crowe. Come experience what good Provence has to offer.

We offer our guests the opportunity to roam the vast gardens and of course hop onto the famous dedicated bike path located just a couple of meters from our house that leads all the way into Apt.

History

Bikewerkx is a long ongoing passion for all things cycling. Having been in the tourism industry for well over two decades, I have had the idea brewing around to make something that could combine my passion for cycling and guests. We recently acquired the Jas de Garrigue which will be the home base for our programs in Provence.
The Jas de Garrigue is our 18th century farmhouse that sits on one hectare of land reaping with lush vegitation including olive, cherry trees and figs trees with the ever present aroma of lavender that lingers continuously throughout the property.
