The cycle route
Fresh out of new holiday ideas? The longest cycle route in France invites you to start a new love affair with your bicycle, and discover the richness and variety of the terrain bordering the Atlantic.
Free and custom-made holidays… there’s a Velodyssey to suit everyone!
The French Velodyssey is part of ‘EuroVelo 1’, one of the 15 cycle routes on the EuroVelo network which connects many of the countries of Europe.
French Velodyssey crosses four regions and 10 departments of France. The French route currently described on this site is 1245 kms long. It will be progressively expanded, with new sections developed on greenways.
Fancy broadening your horizons even further? French Velodyssey (La Vélodyssée) crosses the Channel by ferry between Roscoff and Plymouth to become “Velodyssey” in England, winding its way through the chocolate-box countryside of Devon on an unforgettable voyage of discovery.
French Velodyssey is signposted between Roscoff and Hendaye with the logo on panels throughout the route.
