Véloroutes / Green ways
A Véloroute is a mid- to long-distance cycle route that must be continuous (without any interruptions, even in town), signposted and secure. It can use all kinds of secure routes, including green ways.
The different types of routes
A green way
is “a road reserved exclusively for non-motorised vehicle traffic, pedestrians and horse-riders” (Highway Code). It is accessible to all, without any particular physical demands. Pedestrians, cyclists, persons of reduced mobility, roller-skaters… can use it for recreation, tourism or their daily travel.
