Best Western PLUS Le Moderne invites you to discover the many bike tours on greenways or the major routes available in Calvados.
Cycle through Calvados with your bike, as a couple, with your family or with friends and enjoy new experiences! This territory is full of essential places to discover. You are amateurs, passionate or rather sporty, know that there is something for everyone! The landscaped greenways will allow you to enjoy a safe bike ride with your children.
On the sea side, routes along the coast will give you breathtaking views of the sea, or you can also stroll through the countryside to enjoy the calm, the beauty of the preserved landscapes and the serenity of the area.
Caen la mer by bike with the Vélo Francette
From Caen, cycle to the sea on the green lane of the Vélo Francette for a 1h30 walk in the heart of nature. From the Saint-Pierre basin, located only 600 meters from our Best Western PLUS Le Moderne hotel, you will follow the coastline and the landing beaches. On these 15.5km of secure bicycle paths, take the time to look around you: Benouville Castle, Pegasus Bridge Memorial, Venoix Marsh, the immense beach of Ouistreham Riva-Bella and many others!
Bike ride on the old mining road
Discover the green lane built on the old 19th century mining road. This route, often at high altitude, offers a breathtaking view of the South Plain and the villages. If you are an observer, you will notice the pieces of rail still visible, reminding you of the site's historical past.
When you return from your bike tour to discover Caen and its surroundings, enjoy the elegant and bright bar and the cosy and well-kept lounge of our Best Western PLUS Le Moderne hotel to relax and unwind.
For your comfort, the hotel has a garage at your disposal to store your bike.
