CYCLING TOURS FROM TARNOS & ONDRES
Cycling is the ideal way to discover the Seignanx. First of all because the territory is flat, it has long and wide bike paths, and finally because the pines shelter from the wind, the sun or possible raindrops.
Starting from Tarnos or Ondres, going up the Landes coast, it is very easy to walk on slopes in the direction of Labenne (10 km), Capbreton (20 km)…. Children can move freely because this section is completely secure in the forest.
Always from Tarnos or Ondres, going down towards the Basque coast, the route leads straight to Bayonne (10 km) or Anglet (20 km)… However, some sections are not in their own site, such as in the municipality of Boucau. Cyclists must therefore travel along the road at times.
To facilitate your discovery of the Seignanx by bike, we have defined 4 loops from Tarnos and Ondres. You will find the details of these walks (level of difficulty, distance, plots, PDF file, GPX coordinates, landmarks, photos…) on our cartographic site: SEIGNANX CARTO. on which you can also spot playgrounds, picnic areas, restaurants… You don’t have a bike? No problem, you can rent them directly on site.Les loueurs de vélos proposent de la location à la demi-journée, à la journée ou durant toute la durée de votre séjour.
