[ Cycle routes La Vélodyssée, the Atlantic cycling route ]
  • 90.7 km

South of the Loire, La Vélodyssée has a maritime feel: sandy coves, jagged coastline and small seaside resorts. Here we find Pornic, the gem of La Côte de Jade, nestling in an inlet. The Marais Breton Marshlands bridge the Loire-Atlantique and Vendée, and include the famous, tidal Gois Causeway – leading to the island of Noirmoutier.
