From Cabourg to Deauville, there's a mix of greenways, cycle lanes and roads shared with motorized traffic. This stage is very easy to cycle along up to Houlgate, but it then becomes more challenging, with significant shifts in altitude to tackle to reach the Route de la Corniche or Mont Castel. The stretches along greenways are easily accessible, particularly through the heart of the unspoilt Villers-Blonville marsh. This stretch will be signposted in the course of 2021, but in the meantime, remember to download the GPX tracks. In addition, some surfaces along the way require renovation; they will be gradually repaired going through to 2022.
