45,90 km cycling route from Josselin to Peillac

There is a medieval feel to this stage of La Vélodyssée, both in Malestroit and in Josselin with their timber-framed houses and narrow streets. Called “the Pearl of the Oust”, Malestroit readily opens up its treasures to curious pedestrians.
A pretty stage on a designated track of La Vélodyssée through a sinuous valley of the Oust with the foothills of the Landes and Lanvaux as a backdrop. After passing the confluence with the Claie, St Congard and the Guélin Lock provide very welcome breaks.

Easy going surface on this section with designated lanes.  Take care when crossing the Roc-St-André Bridge; follow the signs to change banks. Take care at the section under the bridge at Malestroit. Very easy-going surface between the Beaumont Lock and St Congard; uneven ground coming into Peillac.


The regional cycle-path n°3 St-Malo > Rhuys crosses the Canal three times between Guillac and Malestroit.


Small, quiet roads to get to St-Laurent-sur-Oust.
