This stage takes you through farmland, with long straight sections that are great for racing joyously along. When you come to the Forest of La Hardouinais, slow down a bit and you might be lucky and be able to spot the odd wild animal.

The route

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.

Links

From the place called Beauregard, you can leave the greenway for a signposted link to the town of Saint-Méen-le-Grand, going via small roads. There are also links to the train stations of La Brohinière and Montauban-de-Bretagne.
