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.

They did it!
