Mountain biking in Brittany is becoming increasingly popular with our clients who take a villa holiday in northern France.
There is great variety in Brittany which is what makes it so interesting for cyclists, you have the coastal areas which are slightly flatter in Finistere in the south, the west coast dominated by high cliffs and in northern Brittany you have a rich mix including the beautiful pink granite areas.
Inland Brittany offers verdant hills, long canals and rivers along with plenty of lakes many of which offer excellent cycling opportunities.
