Itinerary

The Sportvac Voyages team suggests you

(customize according to your needs)
Saint-Malo, loop of Saint-Suliac
Welcome to Saint-Malo. Discover one of the most beautiful villages in France: Saint-Suliac. From the Malouine countryside, you reach the banks of the Rance, a beautiful river that draws its strength from the tides. The water offers a superb spectacle when the setting sun is reflected and return its light on its banks and the stones of the village of Saint-Suliac.
From Saint-Malo to Saint-Cast-Le-Guildo
You leave the corsair city by the sea! At the foot of the ramparts, board your bikes on the sea bus that leads you to Dinard. City of Art and History, Dinard surprises and impresses with its beautiful villas of the nineteenth. You then leave along the coast to reach the cities of Saint-Lunaire and Saint-Briac-sur-Mer, two seaside towns with cut-off shores where sandy beaches and rocky peaks oppose each other. From the peninsula of Saint-Jacut-sur-Mer, you visualize the continuation of the course which leads by the coastal road to the second place of stage, on the commune of Saint-Cast-le-Guildo, ideally located between imposing cliffs of Cap Fréhel and the Corsair City.
From Saint-Cast-Le-Guildo to Erquy
You leave Saint-Cast for a breath of fresh air on a culminating point of the Breton coast, Cape Fréhel and its fragmented cliff which regularly undergoes the attacks of a capricious sea. The interest is also to admire an exceptional site which culminates about 70m above a sea which, when it is calm, is adorned with a beautiful blue dress tinged with emerald. Going back to the road, you pass the town of Les Sables d'Or Pins, which, as its name suggests, shines by its sandy beaches. The town of Erquy welcomes you to its fishing port. It is good to stroll during the landing of fish and scallops.
From Erquy to Saint-Brieuc
The rest of the tour will take you to discover one of the most important production of European mussel mussels, integrating perfectly into the landscape offered by the bay of Saint-Brieuc. The end of the day requires a last effort to reach the top of the city of Saint-Brieuc. You will follow the route of the vestiges of the glorious little train of the North Coast.
From Saint-Brieuc to Saint-Quay-Portrieux
Along the coast of Penthièvre cut and hammered by the incessant chisels of the tides, you crisscross small roads that take you to the ports of Binic and Saint-Quay-Portrieux. These are specialized in scallop fishing and offer beautiful animations that you can enjoy.
From Saint-Quay-Portrieux to Paimpol
The route takes you on the path of schoolchildren to the steep cliffs of Plouha. A most enjoyable way to admire the beauties that the channel offers you. The end of the route takes you to the remains of the Abbey of Beauport and the port of Paimpol where you will appreciate as sailors of old shelter and covered with a well deserved rest!
Paimpol, Loguivy's loop
This bike loop allows you to discover the Trieux, a powerful river that has drawn an extraordinary landscape. You will go to the charming little port of Loguivy and typical of northern Brittany.
