Biarritz / Saint-Jean-de-Luz La Vélodyssée, the Atlantic Cycling Route
I begin / Family
This stage of La Vélodyssée is punctuated with vantage points enjoying exceptional ocean views but it is sometimes challenging and the route is shared with cars. Don’t think twice about parking your bike occasionally and enjoying the picnic areas, tables and discovery trails on hand throughout this section.

Mainly on shared lanes and slightly undulating. Cycle lane works underway. Caution with the traffic when going into Biarritz and St Jean-de-Luz on roads. There is a calmer feel between Bidart and Ste Barbe where the route brushes past residential areas.
No hills on the way to St-Jean-de-Luz station, but do take care at the roundabout.
