This stage of La Vélodyssée in the Basque Country is of great interest. Once over the river Nive, the sea returns as a familiar horizon. At the heart of the BAB country (Biarritz-Anglet-Bayonne) are beautiful beaches, important cultural sites and a remarkable architectural heritage. A cycle lane takes us towards the Anglet beaches up to the ports of Hendaye.

Good cycle lanes from Bayonne to Anglet, despite being a little narrow, even out of season.  Shared lanes while crossing Biarritz.  In Biarritz, bicycles and cyclists aren’t well catered for, hence the one-way system along the shoreline...  If you are following the Vélodyssée from south to north, do this loop anyway.  There are several hills to contend with.



The connection towards Biarritz station is on a steep incline.

  • Really enjoyed this cycle - Jill cooper

    We cycled from Biarritz to Bayonne. Once you got out of Biarritz it was mainly on cycle tracks. It was quite busy on the track and we took a wrong turn just before getting back to Biarritz and ended up on the beach with no way up to the lighthouse. We climbed up the lighthouse for the view and the cool breeze. A great day out.
