The Vendee boasts over 1000km (600 miles) of cycle tracks across the region, especially along the coast, where a cycle track runs virtually the entire length of the seashore. Inland, the mainly flat landscape, quiet country lanes and sleepy villages make it ideal for exploring by bike for all levels of abilities. Seventy routes are detailed on the website with downloadable maps and route details (in French) to help you plan days out.
