Bicycle rides are good for health and environment!

Many hoteliers have noticed the importance of being able to offer bicycles to their clients, either free of charge or at a low rental rate.

The most practical way to discover your surroundings is by bicycle. It is all terrain, economic and ecological; permitting to do a bit of sport and particularly to discover nature or the village at a ´human pace´, with eyes open to the environment (in the first sense of the term) and not fixated on the road.

Florence, at Bruyères d’Erquy, offers them for rental in partnership with a local rental business; she does not have enough footfall to invest in bicycles yet .

Franck Laval, at Solar Hotel (the first 100% eco-hotel, in the heart of Paris), offers them free of charge.

In addition, the simple gesture of offering this mode of transportation raises awareness to the hotels clients, inviting them to think about their travel plans before each journey.
