Welcome bike

Accueil vélo is a national label which guarantees a quality welcome and service all along your itinerary. Identified by its logo, “Accueil Vélo” signals people liable to provide services you may need.

Choosing the Accueil Vélo label allows you to be sure to get the right equipment, such as a secured bicycle locker next to your lodging, bicycle parking at the site of a visit, documents and overall a specific welcome and reliable information dedicated to cyclists!

Lodging, eating, renting/repairing, historical, natural, patrimonial touristic sites, tourist offices…are at your disposal in the Vendôme region.
