Indomitable, the elements and inhabitants are no less welcoming and warm. Do not be afraid to pass the door, to be curious, the pride of its region passes by the pleasure of sharing and exchange.

This bike loop takes you to the east bank of the Morlaix River. You join the Cairn of Barnénez, a surprising site, 7000 years old! A story of love for man that settled this territory so long ago.
Along the Morlaix River, you ride to the English Channel. The smell the salty air and small resort of Carantec feel like the holidays. If you have come to Brittany in the past, the city will certainly bring out old memories.
Morlaix: Lighthouse n°1 (Phare de la Lande), Roscoff: Lighthouse n°2, Ile de Batz: Lighthouse n°3.
You start the day riding along the shores of the English Channel. You leave the pretty port Roscoff and its stones which make the charm of the city. You then take a small road winding between sparse habitat, sometimes laid here and there against massive granite blocks. Pleasant surprises await during the day.
Brignogan-Plage, Pontusval Lighthouse : Lighthouse n°3
You continue your journey west, towards the end of the world! The air is pure and smells of salt and seaweed. Soon in front of you, you will see the Virgin Island and its lighthouse (n ° 4). The highest lighthouse in Europe with 82m high, it is one of the most impressive. At certain periods of the year you can reach the island by boat to visit the lighthouse. To reach the top and access the lens, climb up the 397 steps! You then ride a little bit inland to cross the bridges that allow you to cross the Abers. The tides orchestrate a living natural spectacle. Slowly sea water level rises into the river creating a powerful river arm. Enjoy the show!
As you are close to the harbor, you wake up early to the sound of gulls. You will not smell any scent of oil which woke up the inhabitants of Ploudalmézeau one morning of March 1978. The Amoco Cadiz was shipwrecked just where you are, only 4 kilometers from Portsall. When you see today how beautiful the coast is you can realize the extent of the disaster and the work accomplished to renew its natural state. It took cleaning rocks one by one. Today, there is no trace of oil left. Only the anchor of the oil tanker and a museum at the tourist office testify about this event. En route you reach a strange coast where the meadow flows into the sea; With beautiful granite chaos lying on the beach here and there. A real scenery of end of the world you will soon reach. Let your bike take you to the Pointe de Corsen. You are at the farthest point west in continental Europe! The air you breathe here comes directly from the Atlantic!
Lighthouse No. 5, 6 and 7 today. You can visit Trézien, Lighthouse n°5 in July and August. You can reach it by bike.
From the port of Le Conquet, you are only a few kilometers from the Pointe Saint-Mathieu. If you are a fan of Thalassa, the French television show dedicated to the sea, you will recognize its lighthouse (n ° 8) on the ruins of an abbey. The place is enchanting and the cliffs are grandiose. Attach the bikes and allow yourself some time to explore this site, on the southwest corner of your itinerary. You then head East towards Brest. You keep an itinerary made of small roads along the gully and Brest harbor. A little effort will be needed to come back from the Lighthouse Petit Minou (n°9), the site is a reward in itself! The Portzic lighthouse (n ° 10) and the shipyards of Brest conclude this athletic day.
