30,18 km cycling route from Bricquebec-en-Cotentin to Cherbourg-en-Cotentin

Leaving behind Bricquebec, you pedal along peaceful roads lined with farms and villages. You'll note the talus, high banks dividing up the meadows, fields and orchards, creating a typical Normandy landscape. Brix is your last stop before Cherbourg, with its ferry services to England and Ireland. At Cherbourg's port, a cycle path runs alongside one of the longest harbour walls in the world, dating as far back as 1783.

The route
