“Accueil vélo label” - Bike friendly accommodation and services

Like the county council, the professionals are getting involved in a cycling friendly action. The “Accueil Vélo” is a national brand that guarantees cycling tourists a warm welcome as well as quality services adapted to their expectations.

Based on a quality charter, this label is attributed to different types of tourist establishments located less than 5 km from the one of the counties cycle paths. It covers: 

  • different types of accommodation,
  • bicycle rental and repairers'shops,
  • sightseeing and leisure sites,  
  • as well as Tourist Offices.  

The label is only awarded to companies taking part in the scheme.

Accueil Vélo has an equivalent Label in the Netherlands (Fietsers Welkom!) and in Germany(Bett&Bike). Similarly, in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland the “Welcome Scheme” is designed for cyclist, hikers and numerous other groups.
