Cycle tourists know that travelling on your bike makes it easy to meet new people. Pedalling on La Vélodyssée is your opportunity to:
- Share a moment with family or friends. This is the ideal time to talk and reconnect with each other as you roll along.
- Meet accommodation hosts who love their work and enjoy a chat over breakfast or an aperitif on the terrace. Your accommodation is also a great place to meet other travellers, cyclists and non-cyclists alike. It is always a good time!
- Meet fellow travellers on La Vélodyssée: families, couples, groups, or single riders, young people and less-young people. There are riders going ‘down’ towards the south and those going ‘up’ towards the north. You’ll meet new people on day trips or a weekend jaunt, and others going long-distance, not even stopping at the end of La Vélodyssée and instead continuing along the rest of the EuroVelo 1 - Atlantic Coast Route.
- Take a surfing or canoeing lesson with a local professional or go bird watching, guided by a specialist from the Vendée.
