Night in La Rochelle.

 

Day 2 - Ile de Ré loop - between 45 and 90 km


This morning, take the direction of the Ile de Ré, also called Ré la blanche. Cycle paths crisscross the island up and down.
You take the velodyssey to the island access bridge. On the Ile de Ré, enjoy the beaches, the summer atmosphere, the unmissable villages of the Fleet or Saint Martin. Until Saint Martin, the distance remains reasonable, around 45 km.

On the way south, the Vélodyssée runs along the coast to Châtelaillon-Plage and Pointe des Boucholeurs, with its 1900 summer houses, its casino and its beach. Then return to the coast where you can see the squares and their large legs planted in the sand.
Continue to Fouras and its point of smoke, the place of embarkation for the island of Aix. Plan your day according to the tide times.
The arrival in Rochefort is on a shared road, drive quietly, the cycle path is just behind the roundabout.
End of the stage and night in Rochefort.

The Charente, one of the most beautiful rivers in France, passes through Rochefort. Take the Martrou transporter bridge, a recently renovated 1900 metal monument.
