Why Brittany &

why Brittany Cycle Tours?

Why Brittany?

Whilst French cycling is perhaps best known for the gruelling annual battle of the Tour de France, over the last 10 years, it has also become a paradise for the recreational cyclist. So regardless of your age, travelling solo or with children, even if you have never taken a cycling holiday before, Brittany is the perfect place for a safe cycling adventure: no spandex required! Brittany is to French cycling what Bordeaux is to wine. While its coastline welcomes many holidaymakers each summer, its interior offers idyllic routes through delightful countryside away from the seasonal crowds. The region is also home to more winners of the Tour de France than any other part of France. Brittany is also known for its oysters, crepes, maritime and Celtic past, and regional pride: roadway signs are in both French and the local Breton language.

Why use Brittany Cycle Tours?

We offer hours of the kind of riding almost impossible to find in the UK: wide, smooth roads with little traffic, or designated gravel tracks offering the chance to cover good distances at a reasonable pace. The morning coffee and croissant stop will almost come as an unwelcome interruption to your rhythm. Back on the bike, the routes become more wooded as they twist and turn to the sylvan setting of the river Blavet or Scorff.

Carl & Belinda Foster

Carl has been a keen cyclist since childhood. Starting from 2012 his ‘spare’ time has been spent exploring Brittany, especially the Morbihan department, on his trusty steed and armed with a set of 1:25,00 maps. With the aid and exploits of guests, visitors and friends an ever-growing portfolio of tours has been compiled. Carl will keep you motivated and informed (and your adrenaline pumping on the serious off road routes!) with his passion for the natural environment and narration covering all points of interest encountered on our guided tours.
