Vendée Cycle Paths
EXPLORE THE VENDÉE BY BIKE
Vendée now offers a vast network of excellent quality cycle tracks for riding in complete safety. So far, 765 km of cycle tracks have been created, and by 2010, it will be possible to undertake a complete tour of Vendée by bike, over more than 1,000 km. On the cycle tracks, everything has been put in place to ensure maximum safety: designated cycle lanes or on very quiet roads, the necessary signposting...
To optimize your pleasure, cycle tracks pass through remarkable sites and landscapes:
The length of the coast (285 km): tracks offer a multitude of direct access paths to the beach, whilst enabling full appreciation of an enchanting scenery between marsh, dunes, rocky coastline and seaside resorts.
In the Poitevin Marshes (200 km): from Maillezais to L’Aiguillon sur Mer, explore 200 km of cycle track, alongside the canals. The light, peacefulness and change of scene will always accompany you.
The Bocage (280 km): The particularity of this pathway is the use of quiet, agricultural roads and paths, which will take you right into the authentically natural world. Over 27 km, you will find the track easily navigable, because it was created on the path of an old railway.
Vendee’s network of cycle tracks has the benefit of always being in perfect harmony with the natural elements. And to make your outing even more pleasant, picnic areas, safety barriers and guard rails have been provided along the entire length of the tracks wherever necessary.
