Route 7, linking Channel to Atlantic, shares the way with Velodyssey’s cycle route up to Port de Carhaix.

Along the greenway, you can stop at Gourin, a market town and agricultural centre, and in the green country resort (station verte) of Scaër.

    The 6 stages of the section « Roscoff-Concarneau - Voie 7 »

    • Roscoff / Morlaix

      Roscoff / Morlaix [31.7 km]

      After leaving the old port enjoy a stage filled with scents from the fields of early fruits and vegetables in the Pays Léonard. A great variety of views can be enjoyed as you pass along the little lanes and managed trails, which take La Vélodyssée as far as Morlaix.

    • Morlaix / Scrignac

      Morlaix / Scrignac [21.4 km]

      The seaside atmosphere slips into the background once the greenway reaches the upper part of town. From here on, this stage of La Vélodyssée moves into a dense forest setting, typical of the Monts d’Arrée. TEST MULTILANGUES

    • Scrignac / Carhaix-Plouguer

      Scrignac / Carhaix-Plouguer [26.9 km]

      The greenway is still the common thread of this very nature orientated stage of La Vélodyssée, giving the feeling that you have been plunged into the green depths of Brittany. The impressive natural setting of Huelgoat is well worth a detour, but is usually the preserve of more advanced cyclists.

    • Carhaix-Plouguer / Gourin

      Carhaix-Plouguer / Gourin [21 km]

      Leave Carhaix town for Port-de-Carhaix on a greenway taking you to the confluence of the Hyères River and the Canal de Nantes à Brest. This stretch, free from motorised traffic, has remained largely untouched, with its unspoilt woods. Continue to Gourin, little capital of the Montagnes Noires hills. Here, in late July, there’s a big celebration of traditional Breton crêpes (pancakes).

    • Gourin / Rosporden

      Gourin / Rosporden [30 km]

      After Gourin, you cross through very green parts. The former train station at Guiscriff makes for a charming stop, with its café, exhibition space and campsite. Then enter Coatloc’h Forest to appreciate its magical atmosphere. Approaching the town of Rosporden, farmland increasingly dominates the scene.

    • Rosporden / Concarneau

      Rosporden / Concarneau [15.8 km]

      After Rosporden, this cycle route recently built on a converted railway serves the city center of Concarneau. The route provides lovely views over the countryside and Concarneau bay. At the end of the stage, a pretty greenway though an urban park allows you to finish your trip in gentle fashion, leading you to Concarneau’s port and rampart-surrounded historic centre.
