From one point to another !

Along the Atlantic coast, join the Breton tips trimmed by the sea, in this country that is called the world's end!

After a night just a few steps from the castle of Brest, your bike will take you to the edge of the harbor. You embark with your bike for a small crossing. The beginning of your stay is the start of a great trip!

First the charms of the peninsula of Crozon, then the climb for the bravest of one of the 7 Breton summits. From sea level, you reach 330m altitude to tower over a whole part of your route. A beautiful panorama is offered to you and then a nice descent to your charming hotel located in the middle of the forest. You enjoy here some peace and quiet, like a sailor returning to the port, to recover from your first efforts.

The Pointe du Raz is worth the effort, it takes 2 more stages to finally reach it. A very special atmosphere awaits you here. We must leave the bikes to reach this world’s end. The jagged coast, sheared by the wind and the incessant rhythm of the tides offers you a spectacular landscape. And if there is no “heavy weather” bass fishermen will do a dance display on the waves that form between the tip and the Île de Sein.

Brittany from port to port, a journey in chapters that continues …

You descend to the Port of Guilvinec and wait until 16h to enjoy the daily show of the return of the fishermen and their colorful boats to the port.

This 4th chapter on this port-to-port journey offers many surprises. More physically demanding than the previous ones, it shows a wild Brittany where the character of the men seems to be forged.

You travel the peninsula and cycle along the harbor to the Pointe des Espagnols, also called the Cap Corse of Brittany. You cross Camaret, a charming port with the beautiful Vauban tower and then drive to  Tas de Pois (pea heaps) of Pen-Hir, rocky islands that give the feeling of being at world’s end!

    Ride towards Cape de la Chèvre (or Beg penn ar roz in Breton), the southern cape of the Crozon Peninsula!

Day 3

From CROZON LE FRET to LOCRONAN 44km 453m Niveau Loisir

You walk along the bay of Douarnenez between creek, beach and valleys. The last hills of the Armorican massif make their way to the sea, like one of the seven mythical peaks of Brittany, the Menez-Hom. The route will take you to Locronan, one of the most beautiful villages in Brittany. Spend the night a few kilometers from the village in the middle of the woods.

  • For a few more km 60km 742m Niveau Forme

    Two options are available to extend this route, 10km to reach the Cap de la Chèvre. Then leave the peninsula to climb to the top of Menez-Hom that will offer a unique view of the Bay of Douarnenez and the Monts d’Arrée. This 2nd option is not recommended in foggy weather.

Day 4

From LOCRONAN to PLOGOFF 50km 429m Niveau Loisir

You cross the port of Douarnenez then ride along the bay to the Pointe du Van and discover the Baie des Trépassés. A world’s end atmosphere awaits you as well as one of the most beautiful sunsets of Brittany.

Day 5

From PLOGOFF to POULDREUZIC 43km 334m Niveau Loisir

After a few kilometers, you lock the bikes to walk the path that leads to the tip of the Raz. Nice walk at the world’s end! Then back to the bikes and along the bay of Audierne, you reach the port of the same name. You ride on the route called “The Solar Wind Route”.

Day 6

From POULDREUZIC to GUILVINEC 35km 79m Niveau Loisir

The Solar Wind route continues and leads you to the tip of the Torch, which surfers know well. Then, on arrival at Penmarc’h, you will discover the Eckmul lighthouse. At 4 p.m., be on the port of Guilvinec where many locals and tourists will have already hurried to enjoy the return of the fishermen to the port, a beautiful colorful and authentic animation.

Day 7

From GUILVINEC to QUIMPER 49km 208m Niveau Loisir

You reach the seaside and Loctudy before crossing the beautiful city of Pont-L’Abbé, ranked among the small cities of character. By a pleasant greenway along the old railway line, you go up to Quimper. The capital of the French Cornouaille offers you a beautiful cultural stop. The architecture, the pedestrian streets and half-timbered houses are remarkable. Do not leave without visiting the cathedral!

  • For a few more km 70km 358m Niveau Forme

    After Pont-l’Abbé you reach one of the smallest and most beautiful ports in the region: Sainte-Marine. Placed on the cliffs of the Odet, river that flows here into the Atlantic Ocean, the houses and the mood are cozy. The charm works! You leave this port on a boat that allows you to cross the Odet and reach Benodet before going back to Quimper.
