Camping Based Cycling Routes
12 wonderful cycling routes to every corner of Brittany
This 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 various options based on our fixed-centre accommodation - for example our Bunkhouse. This option adds 15€ for the night per person and makes a rather special last stop;-)

TWO WEEK CAMPING TOURS
Always remember that a two week tour can of course be made by combining any two of the one week camping tours, the advantage being that you pick up a ‘slack’ day when you would otherwise be changing over and this is the option most choose to do.
