Are you ready for an adventure? Explore Brittany by bike! Before experiencing the joys of the cycle routes, here are a few recommendations. Remember the most important thing: your trip is yours and nobody else’s. You set the pace so that your holidays and discoveries are always a pleasure.
Plan your route
Choose a route that suits your desires and your level of experience.
When to go?
Brittany by bike is great from spring to autumn! It’s not too hot or too cold. Off-peak, you’ll find more available accommodation.
How far to travel each day?
Is this your first time? Stages of 30 to 40 km per day are suitable for people with a normal state of health. Take time to appreciate the surroundings. It’s important to linger and visit!
What about speed? 10 kph is the ideal rhythm to fully enjoy the trip.
Start with short stages, then extend the distances and even the pace as you go.
Liability insurance is COMPULSORY before you leave.
Always be careful on roads, at intersections and on bridges. In summer in particular, there may be many of you using portions of the route.
Your safety is at stake, as well as the safety of others. On green routes, pedestrians have priority. Notify them of your presence.
Tell your children the essential safety rules and make sure they wear a helmet – it’s compulsory.
Follow the highway code (fr): ride on the right, always look in front of you and stop before crossing a road. Control your speed at all times. Give way to pedestrians, hikers and horse-riders. The watchword is: courtesy!
Your bike must be in good condition and properly equipped. Read our advice on choosing your bike.
At nightfall, don’t forget to wear a high-visibility jacket.
Calm, close to nature, with minimum carbon footprint, bicycle holidays truly minimise your impact on the environment. Enjoy these special moments; moments for sharing, respect and personal enrichment. You will have an unforgettable experience!
