A classic Breton cycling route, taking in some of the most charming towns and villages in Brittany. Starting in the romantic pirates’ town of St. Malo, you’ll pedal along the coast to Mont-Saint-Michel before turning inland to follow quite lanes and cycle paths to the medieval towns of Combourg and Dinan
Cycling is the best way to get to know this corner of north west France, where the pace of life is relaxed and the regional identity remains strong. As well as historic cities and towns and great local cuisine, you’ll also be fascinated by the remnants of this region’s ancient Celtic past in the many standing stones still dotted around.
Highlights include the charming walled old town of St Malo, medieval picture perfect Dinan deep in the Breton countryside and the unmistakeable Mont St Michel sitting alone in a huge bay 1km from the mainland.
This is a fairly undemanding cycle tour where the emphasis is on relaxing rides and you are able to enjoy the countryside with plenty of time to stop and explore. The longest day is just 30 miles and much of the terrain is pretty flat so this is a tour that is suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness.
