Waytypes of the stage
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.
