In addition to the Vélodyssee, the real main cycling route in the Landes, there are plenty of cycle paths in the Landes region. The Conseil départemental des Landes is firmly committed to cycling as a means of transport, and this is leading to the construction of new pistes cyclables all over this part of Aquitaine.

We show here all the ones near the coast, which is where the foreign visitors flock. In addition, we propose some circular routes using the pistes cyclables alongside other roads, always taking care to avoid busy roads.

First of all, let's take a look at the cycle paths (pistes cyclables) along the Landes coastline using Google Maps. We also include in Google Maps the complete route of the Vélodyssée.

Then, we detail each of the cycle paths that appear on the map.
