Starting from Saint-Brieuc, this trip is resolutely turned towards the sea. You ride along the English Channel, near the cliffs of Goëlo, the Ajoncs coast and the Pink Granite Coast. This trip takes you to a geological miracle: Ploumanac'h’s Pink Granite chaos. Composed of enormous blocks of pink granite with evocative forms, they offer a real moment of wonder. They are among the most amazing landscapes in Brittany. On a dented coast, orned with shoals of pebbles, closed bays and peninsulas beaten by the swell, it offers a magical spectacle that emphasize the changing lights of Brittany. The cliffs offer beautiful coastal roads with stunning wild landscapes. The island of Bréhat and the archipelago of the seven islands can be reached by boat. Embark on short but beautiful cruises to these places of surprising exoticism!
Day 1: Individual arrival in Saint-Brieuc
Arrival in Saint Brieuc. You meet with our guide at your hotel for an orientation meeting.
Day 2: Saint-Brieuc - Saint-Quai, ~26-36 km
You ride along the Penthièvre coast carved by the tides. Contemplate the magnificent bay of Saint-Brieuc and its exceptional richness: the great beach of the Rosaries, Pointe de Pordic ... Along this preserved area, you reach the ports of Binic and Saint- Quay-Portrieux.
Day 3: Saint-Quai - Paimpol, ~30-46 km
You ride to the steep cliffs of Plouha and admire once again the beauty of the English Channel. The end of the trail leads you to the vestiges of the Beauport Abbey and port of Paimpol where you will appreciate, like old time sailors, a well deserved rest!
Day 4: Paimpol - Ile de Brehat - Paimpol, ~12 km
You ride to la Pointe de l’Argouest. Attach your bikes at the docks for the day and embark on the boat to the island of Bréhat. A beautiful day on this heavenly little island awaits. We recommend walking to explore it and discover all the secrets and hidden places of this pink granite piece of land. If you prefer, you can also rent bicycles on the island when you arrive at the port. At the end of the day, you ride back to Paimpol with your bikes.
Day 5: Paimpol - Perros-Guirec, ~48-63 km
You ride through Paimpol countryside, and cross the Trieux river. You reach Lézardrieux, set back from the sea, bathed by the waters of the English Channel and perched on the edge of the estuary. The route then takes you to Tréguier, a small town of character located at the confluence of the Jaudy and the Guindy, the two rivers that entwine it. We suggest you ride around the Pointe du Château and stop for a few moments at the Gouffre de Castel Meur. On stormy days the rocks vibrate, the wind and the unleashed elements howl with a rare intensity the force of the nearby ocean. The rest of the route offers more surprises as you ride through Port-Blanc and its sentinel. You enjoy many panoramas with a breathtaking view of the horizon. The shorter version of the itinerary brings you to Perros-Guirec by small rural roads through the countryside.
Day 6: Loop Perros-Guirec, ~44 km
From Ploumanac'h, before your ride, venture on the Sentiers des Douaniers for a walk on the pink granite! Walk to the Men Ruz Lighthouse for a beautiful visual sight! On the road again you reach the castle of Costaeres enthroned in the middle of a granitic disorder, laid there, no doubt, by some giant. With its fairy style it looks like it is coming straight out of a 1001 night’s tale. It has been watching the coast since the 18th century. The route takesyou to The port of Trebeurden. After the end, you will discover Lannion. The historic center of the city still has beautiful half-timbered façades.
