The route

Leaving the port of Carentan, La Vélomaritime route runs along a canal-side greenway before taking you via tracks and quiet roads, through marshlands, up to Utah Beach. There are no major difficulties along this stage. You need to get off your bike to cross the Pont de la Barquette, an historic piece of engineering, a bridge worthy of closer inspection as you walk over its cobbles, which can be slippery in wet weather. After Le Grand Vey, there’s a stretch on a track that can get muddy. You can avoid this easily by staying on Curry Road, then turning right towards Pouppeville.
