As one of the main concerns of the municipality since 2001, bicycle paths have increased from 3.7mi to 33mi throughout the municipality of Toulon (the urban area adds up 84mi of bicycle paths).
As soon as the repair or the creation of a road occur, new sections of cycle routes are fitted, whether it be tracks, portions or shared spaces, all along 186 mi of the city road network.
The work led concerns the entire TPM urban area. Thanks to the various developments carried out, when leaving Toulon, the cyclists can go to la Seyne-sur-Mer and follow the beaches of Sanary (from le Rayolet to Bonnegrâce) western side.
By leaving eastward, the vast cycle track of the coast connects Toulon with Hyères-les-Palmiers, via le Pradet and Carqueiranne.
In Toulon, the efforts concentrated on the entrance of the city, near the Sports centre (Palais des sports). The passage realized in the heart of the fortifications allows to connect Lagoubran with Malbousquet gate and Castigneau. Other tracks were born particularly near Fernandez stadium and the “Lovers’ river” (la rivière des amoureux), in Le Mourillon and la Rode districts.
These realizations come along with the implementation of various car parks. 165 current parking lots are either mixed (motorcycles and bikes), or reserved for the one or the other category of two wheelers and adds up approximately 1,200 spots. Some of these locations are under video-protection.
