FAMILY CYCLING HOLIDAY RESOURCES
Normandy is good for cycling – there are varied types of landscapes to explore, the roads are quiet and motorists respectful of cyclists. We are near FALAISE on the border of 2 departements – Calvados & the Orne .
For dedicated cycling routes I would recommend 3 Voie Vertes – in the region:
Map of Voies Vertes (Greenways) in Calvados
Calvados by bike Brochure: 2 closest greenways to the Haras. Route Numbers 11 & 12 pp22-24. (The Mezidon- Canon to Lisores section of the Véloroute Côte Fleurie Pays D’Auge. Also the Voie Verte de L’Ante Falaise to Morteaux- Coeuliboeuf.
Mezidon -Canon is 42km /37mins from the Haras du Gazon.
Falaise is 14kms/ 17 mins from the Haras du Gazon.
Orne by bike brochure See P 49 for greenway Voie Verte Flers – Domfront
Example of france velo website search – family friendly cycle ride 17kms from Domfront – ( also shows nearby gites)
(Domfront is a nice little medieval town 50km/ 50 minute drive from the Haras du Gazon)
