camping and youth hostels and cycling info.

by matt695 Online Now Jan 31, 2010 at 12:57 PM

Hi,
Can anyone help my friend and I we are travelling around the Normandy region by cycle,in April.

is any one know or recommend of any youth hostels that will accommodate cyclists or if there aware of any good camp-sites we are not looking for luxury just some where to get our heads down for the night.

Is there any rules or regulations on cycling in France that are different to the UK other that the obvious one.

Are there any dangerous areas in the region

many thanks
matt

    You might like to get hold of the Lonely Planet 'Cycling France' guide, which will give you loads of info/listings etc.

    You'll need a high-vis gilet too....it's the law when cycling outside built-up areas at night, or during the day if the visibility is poor. The gilet must conform to EN471 standard. You can google the standard number for suppliers.
