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
