Atlantic Loire Valley by bike

2800 km of cycling routes

Seeking a change from hectic, formulaic holidays? Explore the relaxing western French region of Atlantic Loire Valley at your own rhythm, via its great 2,500km network of liberating cycle tracks.

Consider the major routes of La Loire à Vélo and Velodyssey or beautiful quieter ones like La Sarthe à Vélo or that along the Mayenne towpath. Down south, enjoy a Tour de Vendée via that county's many cycle paths. Each Atlantic Loire Valley area has its own distinct, authentic, natural atmosphere, best appreciated by bike.

When in cycling mode, you take things in differently, both relaxed and exhilarated, all your senses joyously sharpened.
