1. Slowing the pace


In the Bassin d’Arcachon, cycling is an institution! A favourite means of transport for the locals, it makes it easy to reach the heart of the town, the Bétey dune or the oyster port in just a couple of pedal strokes.


So leave your car in the garage and change your habits to a new steed. After all, you are here to breathe. No Tour de France here, or performance targets, all you need to do is enjoy and slow down.


Whether you head for the covered market to stock up on fresh produce, the Bétey dune for magical family moments, or the natural site of the Quinconces for walks, you will be spoilt for choice for a change of pace!

And why not take up the challenge of cycling around the basin next year? Or plan a cycling holiday on the cycle paths of the Vélodyssée ?

2. take a deep breath of air


And yes, far from the passenger compartment of your vehicle, you will be able to taste the joy of breathing in the pure air of the Arcachon basin! Whatever your journey, you will have the chance to take advantage of safe cycle paths separated from the roads. Ideal for your family rides.

Our advice: attach your bike to the entrances to natural sites to prolong the disconnection. From the Quinconces to Arès, via the Broustic wood in the heart of the city (in search of the owl that has taken up residence there), or the promenade by the swimming pool, you can continue to fill up on sea air.

Come on, trust us, it’s worth the diversions.

3. Learning by pedaling

Looking for a change from traditional walking tours? This is just the thing! Three partners of the tourist office combine the discovery of heritage with a bike ride. In the company of Vélocation or Les Balades Tchanquées for a discovery of Andernos or with Bassin Loc Bikes, there is something for everyone on the Nord Bassin.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to have Poulidor’s level of cycling, you’ll enjoy trails with a more than limited difference in altitude and guides who will make sure you have a good time while pedalling at your own pace.


You know them by heart, the radio or television commercials that encourage you to eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day while practicing regular physical activity… Or those that repeat that carpooling and soft mobility are the future of the planet. Here, no moralizing, everyone does their best! Let yourself be tempted by this eco-citizen and eco-responsible habit, while taking care of yourself…
