Sitting directly on both the canal towpath and just 300m from the V6 cyclepath this is a unique spot in Brittany for a day's very easy and safe cycling or Canoing – perfect for families. For example it is just a half-hour ride along the canal towpath to the ruined abbey at Bon Repos with it's visitors centre, shops, cafes and restaurants. Another km takes you to the Museum at Forges des Salles, or the Petit Train Museum -  For those who are more adventurous we will also supply routes all over the area that are free with the bike hire.

We also have several canoes and Kayaks and nowhere is as safe and easy as our pretty little section of canal - and in a day it's possible to canoe all the way to Bon Repos. 

Special Bike + Canoe Day

As a special offer you can come all day and use both bikes and canoes for the basic one-day price (20 Euro per adult, 10 per child). So a morning cycle can be followed by an afternoon pottering down the canal by canoe - a lovely day out...

The Bikes

As with everything we do 'quality' is paramount, and the bikes we hire are high quality and in perfect condition - well beyond normal hire bikes.  As well as more serious touring bikes and hybrids we also have tandems, children's bikes and even electrically assisted bikes. We've also a range of rather lovely Dawes 'traditional and Dutch' bikes which are just perfect for a gentle wobble down the Canal. These bikes come complete with panniers for your picnic, puncture repair kits and also with a back-up service should you break down. Thus we are not the cheapest bike hire, but we are the best...
