Vineyard by bike
Route along the Sèvre river :
From Nantes, a staked path takes you to Pallet along the Sèvre discovering charming winegrowers villages such as those of the Pé de Sèvre or Port Domino (Nantes / Le Pallet 2 hours).
At Le Pallet you can then join the circuits of the Vineyard by Bike.
The Vineyard by bike is a network of marked circuits of 100 km composed of 5 loops to travel at its own pace. Between 9 and 32 km, the loops go through different towns and allow you to discover varied landscapes and a diversified heritage: castles, vineyards, churches, chapels, sites ….Following local roads little frequented by cars, marked trails promise quiet rides. The 5 loops are interconnected with train access from Le Pallet train station.
The maps of the circuits are downloadable or on sale in the Tourist Offices. ( in french only )
