Bike touring tips N°4: a cycling holiday without my car

How to come to the Vendée without a car?

What could be more pleasant than leaving the car at home during a cycling holiday in France? Imagine using your bike, combined with other modes of transport such as the train for getting around the Vendée… 

The Vendée is accessible by train from the TGV stations of La Roche sur Yon, Les Sables d'Olonne as well as from Nantes, Niort, and La Rochelle. 

Other connections in the Vendée: Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, Challans, Luçon and Montaigu stations.

Know how to travel by train with your bike 

- TER: bicycles allowed free of charge, subject to availability. 

- TGV: some TGVs have a bike area. Booking is mandatory (10 €).

For cycling stays (itinerant style), it is possible to have your luggage transported to your next accommodation thanks to taxi and transport companies.
