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.
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.
Arrival on your own and check in to your hotel. Orientation with our guide today (5 pm)
From Brest, you cross by boat (30 min) the Roadstead of Brest to the peninsula of Crozon. 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!
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.
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.
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.
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”.
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!
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.

Hi David, Geoff and I are now back in Canada having thoroughly enjoyed our cycling trip. The bikes were excellent and we did not have any mechanical issues with them. They were a joy to ride. The daily distance was perfect for us as well. The paniers were also great and provided enough room for our daily needs. The accommodation was excellent and our bags were always ready when we arrived. We also took in many of your suggestions for places to eat and they were great recommendations. We ate well over the week with wonderful seafood. Thanks also for your assistance in getting us to Saint Malo and for assisting us retrieve our passports !! (...) Thanks again for a great week and all the best. I would recommend Abicyclette to others. Prudence (08/2018)
