Nantes to the coast on bike

Friends are thinking of hiring bikes in Nantes city centre and cycling to the coast and on down via St Jean De Monts along the coast to La Rochelle.

Is the cycling safe enough from Nantes to the coast ?

In Nantes it'll be a matter of finding a quiet route out. Once you're beyond there then, absolutely yes. Eurovelo 1 runs from Nantes round the coast down to La Rochelle. Have a look here for a start: https://en.francevelotourisme.com/cycle-route/la-velodyssee-the-atlantic-cycling-route

If they want something more direct it's about finding a quieter road out of the city and then it's fine.

I've spent about 8 summers near St Jean (in Le Fenouiller) and cyclists are treated well.
