The Atlantic coast represents for us the oceanic facade of southern Brittany in the Basque Country. It is a destination on which we have imagined our own borders, the one that traces the route of growing renown: the Vélodyssée. Yet the diversity of territories creates multifaceted journeys. The cultures, cuisine, languages are different offering pleasant surprises and discoveries.
The Atlantic Coast is notably:
Administrative diversity carries a certain inequality in cycling facilities and their quality. Overall from Nantes to Royan, you will find many routes combining small roads and greenways. The greenways are sometimes tarred but often it is a simple yet very pleasant evened path. The Vendée, which is very dynamic in terms of bicycle facilities, offers a lot of paths that have been regrouped and marked to avoid roads as often as possible. On the Charente, the islands enjoy remarkable amenities. Victims of their success, bike paths sometimes look like the peak hours of our metropolitan beltways.
From the Gironde to the Landes, the greenways, often paved, allow to cross the famed forest in a pleasant and secure way.
On the Basque Country, the facilities are varied with a greater proportion of cycle routes. Nevertheless, these last ones make it possible to benefit from beautiful panoramas on this abrupt coast.
The Atlantic coast is one the sunniest regions in France. It also enjoys an oceanic mildness, ideal temperatures for cycling. Only the Basque Country with its mountainous landscape has a greater than average rainfall.
The Vélodyssée route offers many portions of winding greenways in the pine forests. You are thus protected by the dune from the westerly winds which can strike the coasts of the estuary from the Loire to the Pyrenees.
On this route and destination of over 800km long, the landscapes are varied and each one offers exceptional points of interest. From North to South we recommend in particular:
Die Tour hat uns gut gefallen. Danke für die gute und interessante Routenführung. Lieber Gruss (05/2016)
Now that we are home and recovering from jet lag we would like to thank you and Davide for making it such an enjoyable trip despite the rain. The routes were very carefully crafted and gave us good views on safe roads and trails. The GPS was very easy to follow (...). The bikes were very good and performed without problem and the panniers and handlebar bags were the best we have encountered. We think that the combination route that we created with your help gave us good variety in the time we had allowed ourselves. (...) We will certainly recommend Abicyclette to anyone interested in seeing Bretagne on a bike. (...) Thank you again for a wonderful trip. Will and Marilyn (09/2017)
Dear Fabien, Thank you very much for your interest. Thanks to the good one to do, the enthusiasm and the explanations of the guide, today the first day we have completed the first stage successfully in spite of being experienced neither at bicycles nor in GPS. Incredible!!! Thank you very much. A greeting Martha (08/2017)
Hi David, Geoff and I are now back in Canada having thoroughly enjoyed our cycling trip. The bikes were excellent and we did not have any mechanical issues with them. They were a joy to ride. The daily distance was perfect for us as well. The paniers were also great and provided enough room for our daily needs. The accommodation was excellent and our bags were always ready when we arrived. We also took in many of your suggestions for places to eat and they were great recommendations. We ate well over the week with wonderful seafood. Thanks also for your assistance in getting us to Saint Malo and for assisting us retrieve our passports !! (...) Thanks again for a great week and all the best. I would recommend Abicyclette to others. Prudence (08/2018)
