  • Pont-Farcy / La Ferrière-Harang

    Pont-Farcy / La Ferrière-Harang [15 km]

    Pont Farcy, now bypassed from the main road, is a modestly built village but one with a long and proud history: it has its origins in Gallo-Roman times and it has long been an important inland port (some 100km from the coast) and a crossing place over the Vire – notably for those making pilgrimages to Mont St Michel.

  • Le Vivier-sur-Mer / Cancale

    Le Vivier-sur-Mer / Cancale [20.1 km]

    This part of the route, which has the beautiful bay as a backdrop, takes you from one shellfish haven to another: Vivier sur Mer today is still host to many families working and trading with shellfish, while Cancale is hugely popular with tourists for its mussel beds, restaurants and oyster vendors.

  • Cancale / St-Malo

    Cancale / St-Malo [18.7 km]

    You pass through the peaceful village of St. Coulomb and along charming narrow lanes through farmland with distinctive, protected hedges. The rock sculptures of Rotheneuf were created by a hermit priest. Soon St Malo’s battlements are in sight: look out for the wooden stakes on the beach, serving as groynes.

  • Erquy / Yffiniac

    Erquy / Yffiniac [29.2 km]

    On this stage of the Tour de Manche, relish splendid sea views, plus the odd creek accessible to cyclists. After Pléneuf-Val-André, don’t miss the cute, hidden port of Dahouët. This stage involves steep slopes; the terrain helps explain how local cycling legend Bernard Hinault triumphed in the Tour de France! In short, a stage for strong cyclists.

  • St-Brieuc / Binic

    St-Brieuc / Binic [18.1 km]

    This stage of the Tour de Manche takes you up to the seaside resort of Binic, where the marina has been charmingly integrated into the town. Note the two major slopes to tackle going from St-Brieuc, but the Parfond du Gouët Viaduct and the greenway above Binic’s port make the hard physical effort worthwhile. This stage is for seasoned cyclists.

  • Binic / Plouha

    Binic / Plouha [17.1 km]

    This is a Tour de Manche stage that gives a typical flavour of the north Breton coast, with some tough slopes thrown in. There’s a string of seaside resorts with lovely sea views, the fascinating fishing harbour at St-Quay-Portrieux and wild cliffs around Plouha. Don’t miss the enchanting setting of Le Palus Beach. This stage is for expert cyclists.

  • Perros-Guirec / Trébeurden

    Perros-Guirec / Trébeurden [23.6 km]

    This splendid stage of the Tour de Manche takes you along the ‘pink corniche’, a route providing magical sea views and vistas down on tempting beaches – it’s hard to resist taking a dip in the creeks around rocky Le Castel Point. The only negative on this picture-postcard stage is that it requires a good level of fitness, given some steep slopes.

  • Plestin-les-Grèves / Plougasnou

    Plestin-les-Grèves / Plougasnou [19 km]

    You enter the county of Finistère via the beautiful seaside resort of Locquirec. Take in the great beach at the back of the bay, the Pointe du Château headland, and the port. Continue along the steep, wild coast, taking in magnificent views onto a whole series of protected creeks. Before Plougasnou, visit the atmospheric church enclosure at Saint-Jean-du-Doigt.
