Lège-Cap-Ferret / Arcachon La Vélodyssée, the Atlantic Cycling Route
Elevation of the stage
Waytypes of the stage
Surface of the stage
Designated lanes except for the way out of Lège. Slightly narrow but easy-going path. Between Audenge and Facture, the track takes over the former steam-train line that once served the north side of the bay. Between Facture and Arcachon, enjoy the good network of local cycle paths. Between Biganos and Audenge, there is an alternative route which passes close to the water. The cycle lane surfaces here are in a good state. Take care in the Teich bird sanctuary: the route here is not always very clearly marked.
To get to Audenge centre.
To get to Gujan-Mestras and Arcachon:
At Arcachon, a ferry can pick up bikes and take you to Cap Ferret. Alternatively, you can carry on to the town centre by following the seafront all the way to the Pyla Dune, where you will rejoin the Vélodyssée whilst enjoying the very beautiful views of the sea and Cap Ferret from the coastal cycle path.
