Relive something of D-Day and the famous Battle of Normandy. Discover the legendary D-Day landing beaches, where the unforgettable Allied Operation Overlord swung into action on 6th June 1944, witnessing so many feats of bravery. On a quieter note, this section of the Véloroute crosses many pretty villages with their old stone houses and passes in front of many grand farms that often look like manors – they were built at a period when these rich agricultural lands brought prosperity to landowners in the area.

The route

This stage of the Véloroute, starting either from Arromanches or from Port-en-Bessin, takes you along roads that you share with cars, but they are generally easy to use. You cross many pretty villages along the way. Arriving at Bayeux, there is a cycle track that bypasses the centre, offering a safe way round the town. You'll spot signposts indicating 'Plages du Débarquement / Mont Saint-Michel' all along the route.
