Brittany is the perfect place for a French cycling holiday. Take bikes for all the family and enjoy day trips on the miles of safe veloroutes. The 'voies vertes' or greenways are another gem, specially planned to allow cyclists to experience the beauty of nature in the region on routes that follow disused railway lines, country lanes and towpaths. For a more extreme mountain biking experience go off road to explore the forests in the region, those around Paimpont, Pontivy, Mur de Bretagne and La Foret Fousenant are all worth a mention but exploring and discovering your own routes is part of the fun! Look out for VTT centres offering officially approved routes graded for difficulty in the same way as ski runs.
