Learning to Ride


New to the bicycle (velo) a young person cycling on the forest tracks of the Vendee.  

Summer comes to the Vendee early, from mid May temperatures often exceed 20 C, ideal for an early break and only 4 or so hours from the Portsmouth St Malo Brittany Ferry…
The Vendee forest is rich in wildlife in particular birds and unusual plants

There are many cycle and hiking trails, some organised to entertain children.  

There are  warm sweet scents of pines and the very nearby ocean with dunes and silky sandy beaches.

Notre Dame de Monts is a lovely village offering inexpensive gites and good food.

The painting’s dimensions are 40 x 50 cms (20″ x 16″), oils on board, oak frame price £650.00.
