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:

It has been an excellent experience. Totally raw with the bicycles, everything was organized so well (bicycles, housings, local information to eating) that we enjoy every moment of the tour. The explanations of the first day on the part of the guide us turned out to be very useful and to know that always you could rely on the organization it allowed us to enjoy the trip. The tour, on there having no been rolled traffic, is most indicated for people that as us it cannot circulate in road with the bicycle. The way of sirga that accompanies on the channel of Nantes Brest is of a spectacular beauty. It seems of another time, to admire the flowers that adorn the exclusas of the Channel, the villages that you are, a marvel. What more we estimate : All the explanations the day of delivery of the bicycles and of the documentation. The transport of suitcases and last day the taxi up to the village where we had to catch the bus. We come to France without having anything organized absolutely. (09/2017)
