Tour de Manche, a unique cycling adventure that links France and England

Tour de Manche is a 1200km long itinerary; following the coastline of Brittany through the famous Pink Granite Coast and Cap Fréhel. It links up Brittany and Normandy to Dorset and Devon, two counties of South-West England boasting some of the most glorious seaviews and countryside.


Petit Tour de Manche, 450km, is an epic journey along part of the Dorset Jurassic Coast and across the Channel to the Mont St-Michel, both sites classified as world heritage by UNESCO. Offering a visit of the Emerald Coast, the Vire Valley and one of France’s  Regional Parks, you can  stopover in beautiful Jersey or go on to discover the D-Day Beaches of Normandy.
