Here in Brittany, getting out on two feet or two wheels is an irresistible urge. In any weather conditions, hundreds of miles of Green Ways are accessible and free of the mud that clogs up more undulating country tracks. They are based on canal towpaths and disused railway lines, forming a network of long-distance routes. No cars allowed, and there's plenty of nearby accommodation for the traveller and his bike or horse.
