Loudéac / Merdrignac Carhaix to St-Méen-le-Grand - Cycle Route 6 in Brittany
Waytypes of the stage
The signage along the route is complete, but interspersed with older signs indicating ‘Chemin de Randonnée’ or ‘Chemin du Petit Train’ alongside more recent signs for ‘V6’ (Route 6). Note that the distance given in km varies according to the type of panel; the older ones only cover stretches on the greenway, while the more recent ones calculate right up to the destination. In villages near the greenway you won’t always find signs leading to the greenway, so if you leave the route to explore such villages, note how to get back to the greenway.
Take care: note there’s a dangerous crossing of the D 792 road at the level of Plémet, plus there’s a dangerous point where you have to cross the D 6 road before Merdrignac.
The surface is mainly sandy, so watch out for certain softer stretches and parts with ruts, in order not to be taken by surprise.
