Our history


Clare came to France in 2014 after several years working as a management consultant at Accenture in London. 

She and her husband Jean-Pierre have always loved outdoor activities, especially cycling. In Lot-et-Garonne there are beautiful landscapes, small country roads, the Canal de Garonne bike path, sunshine and of course delicious local wine! So the idea of running a bicycle hire company seemed to fit! 

In 2017, the business started small with just 5 bikes. Now there are 70, and the shop in the garage has now moved to a proper building in the centre of the village.   The aim of Cycles Sud-Ouest is to provide quality bicycles and excellent customer service to all of our customers. 

Clare and her team are passionate about sharing their enthusiasm for cycling and the Lot-et-Garonne, and always with a smile.
