Cycling is more than just a way of getting around, it is an “art-de-vivre”, a combination of well-being,
protection of nature, the environment and slowing down the pace
There are plenty of shaded cycle paths available so you can get around in complete safety.

La Grande Motte regularly works in collaboration with artists from all walks of life on design projects.
For example, in 2017, designer Jean-Gabriel Causse and French cycling designer, Caminade, joined forces to create a bicycle inspired by the resort,
the shapes of its architecture, the color of its vegetation, and its play with emptiness and the air. Combining avant-gardism and eco-responsible virtues,
this special La Grande Motte bike has an electric assistance system that uses a motor and a battery that recharges with each braking action.
