Cycle along the Atlantic coast on your own.
Thanks to the varied landscape and pleasant weather, cycling along the Atlantic coast is a very relaxing activity. The Gironde has a total of more than 700 kilometres of tarmac cycle paths. The network of cycle paths takes you along the Atlantic coast through forests and dunes, through vineyards or along the beautiful Bay of Arcachon.
Various cycle routes, including those to the coast, start directly from the park.
Vélodyssée cycle path
The Vélodyssée is a signposted cycle route along the entire French coastline, including the Aquitaine coast.
Of course, you can follow short sections of the beautiful cycle route. Cycling along the historic castles, the cycle path gives an extra dimension. The landscape and the cultural environment alternate and complement each other. Part of the cycle route runs along the bay and through the Landes nature park. Good cycling weather is guaranteed in Aquitaine, with a fresh sea breeze to cool you down while you ride.
In France, children under the age of 12 must wear a helmet when cycling. This applies both to children riding a bike and to children sitting on the back.
