I cycle often
With its mix of rocky headlands, stretches of moorland and sandy bays set beside turquoise waters, here you cycle through the Grand Site de France Cap d’Erquy - Cap Fréhel. Thanks to the links in place, you can easily ride up to some of Brittany's most exceptional sites, the Cap d’Erquy, the Cap Fréhel and Fort La Latte. The breathtaking views along the way are a reward for the quite significant slopes you have to tackle on this Vélomaritime stage!

Mainly along minor roads that don't present any major difficulties, but with some significant slopes.
Take care after Plévenon at Port-la-Duc, after the segregated stretch, where crossing the D786 road can be dangerous because traffic is often busy here.
