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

From Bricquebec to Rocheville, you pedal along a greenway, then the stage follows peaceful, rural roads before descending to Cherbourg, a port well provided with cycling facilities. The shift in altitude along this stage makes it quite challenging in parts.
