We (2 adults and 2 children aged 4 and 2) were holidaying at Couetilliec Cottages, a wonderful place run by the owners of Brittany Cycle Tours from where we hired bikes for a morning cycling. Carl had a very good knowledge of the region and various tried and tested cycling routes for all abilities and durations. He also offers a very helpful and flexible drop-off / pick-up service so you spend your time on an interesting route and can then be picked up when and where suits (access permitting). We opted for a very sedate cycle alongside the river Blavet between Pontivy and Saint-Nicolas des Eaux which has a wide and well maintained tow path running alongside. Having driven us to Pontivy, Carl set us up with very new and immaculately clean mountain bikes with very secure rear seat attachments for each of our children Our 4 year old was comfortable in the seat and had plenty of visibility our 2 year had the carrier reclined and promptly fell asleep! The route along the river to Saint-Nicolas took us a couple of hours and was very peaceful and scenic with lots of opportunities to stop at interesting sites along the way. Once at Saint-Nicolas we had time for lunch overlooking the river before Carl collected us to take us back to our accommodation. All in it was a really worthwhile experience which the children loved as much as us!

Many thanks for your review. We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your adventure along the River Blavet. It is a truly beautiful and safe cycling route giving you traffic free, level cycling along the tow path. There are many points of interest along the way as well as places where you can stop and enjoy some food and drink. The drop off and collection service allows you more time to enjoy the River Blavet Tour without the worry of 'getting back to your vehicle'. Brittany Cycle Tours only use quality bikes, Calibre Two. Twos with Shimano Deore components (see MBUK magzine’s 5 star review), and Hamax child seats which can recline for the comfort of your little ones. We hope to see you again at Couetilliec Cottages so that you can complete the River Blavet Tour with Brittany Cycle Tours! Carl and Belinda Foster

We hired bikes for the family (children aged 11 and 13). We started the cycle at Pontivy and got to Pont Augan. Carl did the drop off and pick up and was accommodating and flexible about the times. The cycle itself is easy along the canal route and a great stop off for a crepe or refreshments on route. The scenery was stunning and we had a wonderful day out.

Carl & Belinda at Brittany Cycle Tours are The most hospitable you will meet. Excellent set up with great bikes of all sizes and catered for our two little ones with child seats / trailers as neccesary. Carl listened to what we were looking for gave us some great options on routes that suited us. Gorgeous cycling for the serious or tame - there is something to suit. Also they have a nice selection of accomodation & facilities available too if you need it. Thanks again and we will definitely be back Until next time Dan & Family

Cycle routes for the family or more accomplished traveler around this beautiful part of rural France. Map routes tailored to your capacity with sites indicated along the route. Back up if you run into problems, and support if you travel further afield to get you to and from. We did the range over a weeks stay, along stunning river ways, and across hills to a lunch at a local restaurant. We hired 4 bikes for the week to save all the messing around, at a reasonable price, and were well looked after by the hosts of the cottages located on the same site. Great time had by all.

A really nice ride provided by Brittany cycle tours. A ride for the family down the side of a very pretty river with good bikes. A drop off and pick up service was provided as was a map of the ride a day and money well spent.
