St-Malo-Presqu'île de Rhuys

[ Cycle routes Brittany by bike ]
  • 212 km

Route 3 follows the same path as Route 2 from Saint-Malo up to Mottay Lock on the Canal d’Ille et Rance. From there, this greenway offers easy cycling, running beside the legendary Arthurian Forest of Brocéliande. It leads to Ploërmel, a favourite home of the dukes of Brittany, then along to Questembert. Beyond that point, the route as far as the Presqu’île de Rhuys has yet to be laid out.
