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.
