There are five local colour coded cycling routes two of which can be started from the doorstep. Maps are available in the Bakehouse. The hosts have three adult bikes available for guests to use, but guests should bring their own cycle helmets and high visibility clothing, etc. In Domfront there are a number of disused railway tracks which have been made into walking/cycling routes. These routes are flat and straight and give plenty opportunity to divert off into small towns and villages for refreshments. There are many cycling groups and races in the area and leisure cyclists are made welcome by local people who are kind enough to offer you a lift if you have a problem with your bike. If you would like a guide to take you out cycling please ask in advance of your visit and we will try to arrange an outing for you.
