Cycling in the Vendée, France

On your bike!

Cycle Tour – Tuesday, 16th September – Vendee

Summer may be fading and the tourists heading home but I’m still of the view that September is one of the best months to enjoy the Vendée. The weather is still great (dare I say better than in it was in August), the attractions quieter and with the first gentle glow of Autumn in the trees, the scenery is better than ever.

And if you fancy getting out and enjoying it all, then Rick and Angie Spurier have just made it both easier and a whole load more fun. They’ve started a bike hire company (GoGo Bike Hire) and as part of that, they’ve teamed up with another local business, Le Clemenceau Bar (Mouilleron en Pareds) to offer a cycle tour of the local area.

Starting at Le Clemenceau Bar (Rue Clemenceau, 85390 Mouilleron en Pareds) at 11.00 am on 16th September, Rick will guide you along the Vendée Velo route, passing through Bazouges en Pareds and Pulteau and finishing at Le Clemenceau Bar.

This 21 km but leisurely ride will take approx. 1.5 – 2 hours and it’s no problem if you don’t have a bike as GoGo Bike Hire will supply hire bikes, helmets etc. with sizes to suit all at a cost of €10 (although of course if you have your own bike you are more than welcome to join too for just €2).

If you would like to know more or take part then email Rick and Angie on gogobikehire@gmail.com  and don’t forget to state your height if you are hiring a bike.

Refreshments can be purchased in Le Clemenceau bar prior to your departure and on your return … maybe you’d like to treat yourself to a well earned lunch! And if all goes well, this will be the first of many! Good luck and enjoy!
