GOING - COMING BACK

The start and the end of the cycle ride are in Nantes. It is very easy to get there with your non-dismantled bike by TGV from Paris, or by Intercity CORADIA LINER from Bordeaux or Lyon.

 

LINK

If you want to cycle to the foot of Mont-Saint-Michel via the Pont-Passerelle it is imperative to do so before 10am. After the crossing is exclusively reserved for pedestrians, bicycles are forbidden.

The passage from Saint-Malo to Dinard is made by the Bus-de-Mer of the Corsaire company.
In Dinard there are two different arrival/departure holds (quays) according to the timetables. WARNING the 'Cale Compagnie Corsaire' is a horror for bicycles with stairs that cannot be avoided. It is imperative to choose the other one, the 'Cale de la Vallée'.

SECTIONS

We make a large loop roughly centered on Rennes using :

  • The LOIRE À VÉLO, from Nantes to Bouchemaine (near Angers)
  • The VÉLOFRANCETTE, from Angers to Domfront.
  • The VÉLOSCÉNIE, from Domfront to Mont-Saint-Michel
  • The Mont-Saint-Michel - Saint-Malo Greenway
  • The greenway Saint-Malo - Rhuys, from Saint-Malo to (after) Ploërmel
  • The CANAL DE NANTES À BREST, from Monterlot (before Malestroit) to Nantes

ACCOMODATIONS

The entire hike was done in camping mode:

  • Overall the quality of the campsites is very good.
  • The best in terms of quality-hospitality-equipment-equipment:
    • Camping Le Painfaut in Saint-Vincent-sur-Oust on the Canal de Nantes à Brest.
    • A warm, friendly and attentive welcome by the attentive and accommodating manager.
    • Service "aux petits soins" with delivery in the morning to the tent of warm bread and croissants.
  • The worst in terms of hospitality and service:
    • Camping De La Sélune in Pontaubault
    • Pitiful welcome by an Englishman who hates the French and only deigns to smile at the Dutch and English who are his real business.
    • He is a miser who pulls on all the minimum services (even the toilet paper is paid for).
