Vélomaritime “la Littorale” magical views of the open sea

This EV4 European bike route is perfect for lovers of cycling trips on the move. Connecting Roscoff to Kiev in Ukraine, it also combines cycling and ferrying around the English Channel via Normandy and England. In Brittany, it makes a spectacular stop on the Pink Granite Coast and its legendary landscapes.
From the Lieue de Grève to the Trieux estuary via Ploumanac’h, you pedal on small roads with little traffic or old railroads transformed into greenways. Whether you take it as an itinerary or over short distances, this marked bicycle route, with a few changes in altitude but no major difficulties, will help you discover all the riches of the Breton coastline.

Cross the secret Trégor through its back roads

A network of family bicycle loops completes this route. Designed especially for families, they are of limited length and take the small roads of the Trégor in complete tranquility. Castles, chapels, megaliths, flax mills, hidden fountains, are all treasures that you can unearth at your own pace along these cycling routes.
