This is a great opportunity offered to locals and passing tourists, without their car, to favor sustainable mobility in addition or not to public transport. 

Who says self-service bike, says bike available 24/24! These bikes made in Vendée have a range of 7 km (depending on use). Battery charging, maintenance and assistance are provided by a local service provider.
