The Manuel du Voyage à Vélo is one way of doing that. The country files complete the picture. They’re written specifically for bike travellers like you, with the general and tourist information that cyclists need but which often you won’t find in guide books.
The first country files appeared in January 2014. We’re still adding to them. Over time, we hope to add routes to the countries already there and to add more countries, with the help, of course, of people like you who’ve travelled there.
For an example of what’s inside, three files – Iceland and Cuba (in french); France (in english) – are open to all. For the rest, and there are 31 countries so far, you have to be a member.
Another good reason to join!
The countries listed so far are :
- CANADA (travesrsée)
- CANADA (Québec)
- ESPAGNE (Andalousie)
- ESPAGNE (nord-ouest)
- ROYAUME-UNI (Écosse)
To look at a file, sign in at the members link (adhérents) at http://adherents.cci.asso.fr. Now, on the left-hand column, click “Fiches Cyclo-Pays”. You’ll then get a list of countries and you can download the ones that interest you in pdf.
You can also get to the files in the “countries visited” area (pays parcourus). The files appear with the list of members who’ve ridden in each country.
Thanks to everyone who’s already helped. And please don’t forget that we’d love to hear from you if you can improve an entry or tell us about another country.
