Cycling as a family in Auvergne
For easy quiet rides and outings with family and friends, the Auvergne is the ideal place.
With its undulating landscape and its substantial network of small picturesque roads, the Allier departement is particularly adapted for bike rides. The Puy-de-Dôme and the other departements also present a number of routes.
Escape for short time, from a few hours to a few days, and let yourself be surprised by the wealth of the natural and cultural heritage … in a green environment full of castles and curiosities, you can be sure of a pleasant ride!
Greenways - facilities for safe cycling
Why not take one of the green ways and follow the trails for a family adventure with even the smallest members of the family … for example, "La Voie Verte du Puy-en-Velay" will take you through wonderful landscape but, be careful, don't forget to pedal ...
The vélo-rail, another way of pedalling
Bicycles are mounted onto a platform which fits on the rails of an old railway line... The view can be surprising! It's a great and handy way of exploring the Auvergne.
