Camping Based Cycling Routes

12 wonderful cycling routes to every corner of Brittany

brittany - france mapThis page is designed to give you guidance as to what cycling route might suit you best - BUT! it is no substitute for a personal email to us, we fully expect customers to email before they book in order to discuss their needs - we are the most personal cycling holiday company in the business so take advantage of it:-)

The big advantage of cyclecamping over hotels is its flexibility. If you completely misjudge how far you can cycle then it's not a catastrophe - you can alter the route as you go, miss out stops, double up days or even go off in a completely different direction - we don't mind! If you end up going 'off-piste' like this, a quick phone call to us to check if there's a campsite in the next town, or for advice is no problem. Also if you find you really NEED a proper bed again you can phone us and we'll book you into the nearest hotel for the night - pretty much anything is possible

A Little Luxury?

Obviously for all these tours you have your own lightweight equipment, but if you are arriving fairly late or have to leave early at the end of the week, or just fancy one night a little bit different to the others, we are this year offering a very special night at the campsite in our classic 1960's Notin caravan. This option adds 60€ for the night and makes a rather special last stop;-)
