France by bike: discover all the bike itineraries in France
Cycling in France is one of the most beloved activities not only by tourists, but also by the French themselves who often choose to discover the unique beauties of their country, through a bike trip.
France was one of the first European countries to have understood the importance of cycle tourism and to have invested in creating the services and infrastructure necessary for every need. For this reason, discovering France by bike is one of the most beautiful experiences that can be done.
From the wide plains of the north, to the wild coasts of Brittany and Normandy, from the Alps to the bucolic scenery of Provence: the diversity of landscapes is what makes the travel experience beyond the Alps unique. But discovering France by bike also means visiting some of the most beautiful art cities in the world, first of all Paris, but also Lyon, Strasbourg, Marseille, Nice and Nantes.
France is also crossed by one of the most important cycle tourism routes in Europe: the Avenue Verte, which connects London and Paris following the Eurovelo 1. Furthermore, it is important to know that the cycle tourism routes in the country are mainly divided into two types: the Voies Vertes, routes closed to car traffic, and the ordinary road network.
