St. Jean-de-Monts is a very popular holiday resort, with a large promenade and bikes everywhere!
more... The area is very flat and unlike the coast in other parts of the Vendée, the beach can be accessed without climbing the sandunes. The cycle paths run the entire length of the beach making it an easy place for families to jump on a bike and get some sun, sand and sea!
Alternatively for the more adventurous, the Marais-Breton-Vendéen (an area of marshland, just inland from the town) offers easy, well maintained routes for cycling - the best way to explore this unique natural environment. Route guides are available at local tourist office which provide information on the length, estimated journey time and the things to look out for. Dont forget you water, sun cream and spares for your bikes - there are no shops and vehicular access is limited!
The bike hire companies listed may also provide bike rental services in the Les Sables-d'Olonne area.
Please check with the individual organisations to confirm they can help you if you are outside Saint-Jean-de-Monts.
