Day ride in the Vendée, September 16

Published by Lyn on 5 September 2014

Info on a 21km day ride in the Vendée on September 16, 2014.

Clemenceau by Leprovost
The ride starts in Mouilleron-en-Pareds, birthplace of Georges Clemenceau, shown here watching over the Champs-Elysées. Clemenceau was known as Père la Victoire for his role leading France through World War 1. He was French Prime Minister from 1906-1909, and 1917-1920, and played a key role in writing the Treaty of Versailles. Photo: Sylvain Leprovost

The newest bike hire outlet on the block, GoGo Bike Hire, in the Vendée has organised a day ride following part of the Vendée velo route for September 16.

The ride will leave Le Clemenceau Bar (Rue Clemenceau, 85390 Mouilleron-en-Pareds) at 11am and pass through Bazouges-en-Pareds and Pulteau, finishing back at Le Clemenceau Bar. It'll be a leisurely ride, taking around 1.5-2 hours, and cover undulating countryside (nothing too strenuous!)

If you don't have a bike, you can hire one for €10. The ride costs €2 if you have your own wheels.

Refreshments and lunch available at Le Clemenceau.
