The history of the trip
Brittany from port to port is the first trip created and organized by Abicyclette, in 2010. It was imagined like a sea cruise: try never to take our eyes off the sea! We use a maximum of small roads to stay closer to the coast. The circuit benefits each year from the improvements made and takes advantage of the new cycling facilities (greenways), which have developed particularly since the launch of the Tour de Manche in 2013. Some of the accommodations of this stay have not changed since its creation. They are part of the history of the journey and testify to many experiences and encounters. Brittany from port to port is a classic for all lovers of the sea and Brittany.
Discover the Breton ports and their life. From Saint-Malo, a commercial port and an old privateer port, to Paimpol, a fishing port specialized in scallops.
From the great fortress of Saint-Malo to Paimpol, you will stop at the most typical Breton ports on the north coast. Fishing port or marina, the warm atmosphere of the cities of the sea will allow you find true moments of fulfillment. Cape Fréhel, the Bay of Saint-Brieuc, the tip of the Arcouest, so many places where nature will reveal its most beautiful colors. The yellow of the brooms (Genista), the pink of the heather (Calluna) and the granite, the emerald blue of the sea, the green of the ferns … They mix to offer a living landscape, invigorating where one simply feels well.
Sailors, privateers, buccaneers … embark on this cruise of multiple treasures. Gourmet, historical, geographical, musical, folkloric, these are the treasures that will make your wealth. Crêpes & galettes, seafood, fish and other local specialties will generously garnish your plates to reward your effort.
Brittany from port to port, a journey in chapters that continues …
Chapter 2 (7 days): The Pink Granite Coast
Chapter 3 (7 days): The Lighthouse Circuit
Today this first itinerary brings you to discover one of the most beautiful villages in France: Saint-Suliac. Initially in the Malouine countryside, you enjoy the banks of the Rance, a beautiful river that pushes its strength of the tides. The water offers a wonderful spectacle when the setting sun is reflected and return its light on its banks and the stones of the village of Saint-Suliac
You leave the corsair city by the sea! At the foot of the ramparts, board your bikes on the water bus that lead you to Dinard. City of Art and History, Dinard surprises and impresses you with its beautiful nineteenth century villas. You then set out again along the coast to reach the cities of Saint-Lunaire and Saint-Briac-sur-Mer, two seaside towns with cut-off shores where sandy beaches and rocky peaks are set against each other. From the peninsula of Saint-Jacut-sur-Mer, you visualize the rest of the course which takes you by the coastal road to the second stage, on the commune of Saint-Cast-le-Guildo, ideally located between the imposing cliffs of Cap Fréhel and the Corsair City.
You will leave Saint-Cast for a breath of fresh air on a summit of the Breton coast, Cape Fréhel and its fragmented cliff which regularly undergoes the attacks of a capricious sea. The benefit is also to admire an exceptional site which culminates at approximately 70m above a sea which, when it is calm, is adorned with a beautiful blue hue tinged with emerald. Going back on the road, you will pass the town of Les Sables d’Or Pins, which, as its name suggests, shines thanks to its sandy beaches. The town of Erquy welcomes you to its fishing port. How good it is to stroll during the arrival of fish and scallops.
The rest of the tour takes you to discover one of the most important production sites of European bouchon mussels, which integrates itself perfectly into the landscape offered by the Saint-Brieuc Bay. The end of the day requires a final effort to reach the top of the city of Saint-Brieuc. You take the route of the remnants of the glorious little train of the Côtes du Nord.
Along the coast of Penthièvre cut and hammered by the incessant chisels of the tides, you will crisscross small roads that take you to the ports of Binic and Saint-Quay-Portrieux. These are specialized in scallop fishing and offer beautiful activities that you can enjoy.
You will be able to contemplate the magnificent bay of Saint-Brieuc and its area of exceptional wealth: the large beach of Rosaires, Pointe de Pordic …
The path takes you on the scenic route to the steep cliffs of Plouha. A most enjoyable way to admire the beauties that the Channel offers you. The end of the route takes you to the remains of the Abbey of Beauport and the port of Paimpol where you can enjoy, as did sailors of old, shelter and a well deserved rest!
On this stage, the most beautiful points of view are deserved! We invite you to discover the Pointes de Minard and Plouézec, the beaches of Palus and Bonaparte. These are the most beautiful views of the cliffs of the Goëlo coast.
This bike loop allows you to discover the Trieux, a powerful river that has drawn an extraordinary landscape. You go to the charming and typical of northern Brittany little port of Loguivy.
You can ride your bike to Pontrieux, another small town of character, also known for maintaining and flowering the old wash houses bordering the Trieux river which runs through the town.

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)
Die Tour hat uns gut gefallen. Danke für die gute und interessante Routenführung. Lieber Gruss (05/2016)
It has been an excellent experience. Totally raw with the bicycles, everything was organized so well (bicycles, housings, local information to eating) that we enjoy every moment of the tour. The explanations of the first day on the part of the guide us turned out to be very useful and to know that always you could rely on the organization it allowed us to enjoy the trip. The tour, on there having no been rolled traffic, is most indicated for people that as us it cannot circulate in road with the bicycle. The way of sirga that accompanies on the channel of Nantes Brest is of a spectacular beauty. It seems of another time, to admire the flowers that adorn the exclusas of the Channel, the villages that you are, a marvel. What more we estimate : All the explanations the day of delivery of the bicycles and of the documentation. The transport of suitcases and last day the taxi up to the village where we had to catch the bus. We come to France without having anything organized absolutely. (09/2017)
