A 18 km climb and 215m vertical drop, with some descending parts and some rolling ones, to bring you to the top of the ridge. During 13km, you slalom between the Roc’h (peaks of the ridge), in very beautiful tracks, at the same time rolling and technical, often in single-track, widening by moments. From the top of the ridges, the view of the Regional Natural Park of Armorica is a beautiful reward.

You descend from the crests through the forest to return to Huelgoat. A total of 55KM for this most impressive stage!

Hello Natalie, We are now back in Sweden from our bicycle tour in Normandy. I would just like to give you some feed back from the tour: We were all very satisfied with the trip. When planning the trip, we found it very easy to work with you, quick answers and good flexibility for our ideas. Excellent choice of roads, which took us through the fantastic landscapes of Normandy, and also along the fashinating see shores ending with the first D-day shore. Most roads with very little traffic. We also appreciated the kindness of all french drivers who never complained although we sometimes were in the middle of the small narrow roads. The distances was OK for all of us. When there was a choice of long or short distances, we always selected the long ones. Easy to find the roads with the excellent GPS and the very good Road Book. We also appreciated the very good choice of B&B, places where we felt wellcome and with good standard. A trip we will recommend to our friends. We also had good luck with the weather, lots of sun, not to strong winds, just one or two showers in daytime. (Was the weather also organised by you??) With Best Regards (05/2017)
