Surface of the stage
Particular vigilance during the crossing of Leon: the traffic is done on the road. Then, designated forest lanes. Easy going. From Vieux-Boucau to Capbreton, the way is still slightly undulating and the greenway continues, very well signposted and with excellent surfaces. Take care near Hossegor as lanes are shared with pedestrians.
Léon beach (3 km round trip). Moliets-plage from Moliets-et-Maa (3 km on the D 117 – very busy in summer). Access to the beach at Messanges via the D 82 (2.7 km). The Vieux-Boucau and Port d’Albret beaches. Soustons and its pond (8 km round trip) - then the Vélodyssée intersects with the Courant de Soustons.
To Seignosse: on a lane reserved for bicycles.
To Hossegor: on shared roads with the car and cycle lane.
In Capbreton: many bike paths.
