Hourtin-Plage / Lacanau-Océan La Vélodyssée, the Atlantic Cycling Route
In forest, Seaside

I cycle a lot
Still in the forest and still on cycle paths. The natural reserves encountered throughout the route demonstrate that these large spaces are populated, rich in wildlife and a lot more diverse that we may first think…

The route from Hourtin-Plage to Carcan-Plage is shared with other traffic; the forest route is not very busy. The course crosses several local cycle paths. From Carcan-Plage to the way into Lacanau, the route is on resurfaced designated lanes. The level of difficulty in the dunes is not inconsiderable: it is like cycling along a rollercoaster!
Lacanau is easily accessible, with designated, well surfaced cycle lanes. All facilities available.
