Dream of going away with friends or family for an unforgettable cycling trip, but scared of the logistics involved? Group’AVélo offers solutions that will make your life easier! Here are three great reasons to explore the Atlantic Loire Valley’s cycle routes as a group.

Travel light

Only take what is strictly necessary! Group’AVélo’s packages have been put together to give you peace of mind in the saddle – and no heavy bags. Bedding, bathroom linen, dinner and a picnic hamper all await you at your pre-booked accommodation. So you can spend more time enjoying your friends and family!

Make life easier

Planning a cycling break, especially for a group, is not always easy. One night or more? Half or full board? Every last detail has to be thought through, and often you have to deal with multiple service providers. Group’AVélo makes things easy, with its network of accommodation all at the same prices and including the same services – making it similar to all-inclusive packages.

Cycle on safe, marked routes

You will ride along parts of the major cycling routes that cross the Atlantic Loire Valley region: La Loire à Vélo, La Vélodyssée, La Vélo Francette and La Vélocéan. Along dedicated cycle paths or on roads shared with cars, these routes are safe and clearly marked, giving you peace of mind as you pedal!

So why not make the Pays de la Loire the setting for your next cycle trip? And why not get your friends, family or colleagues to join you? As they say, the more the merrier! Hit the road and share some unique experiences!

Below you will find the eight accommodation options offered by Group’AVélo, the leading network of Accueil Vélo-labelled accommodation along the cycle routes of the Pays de la Loire, with rooms specifically geared to cycle tourists and cycling enthusiasts (ten to 80 people).
