From Arromanches, you take a greenway beside the road to reach Asnelles's sea wall. Note that this stretch begins with a significant slope as you leave Arromanches, most cyclists forced to dismount for a time.
Between Asnelles and Courseulles-sur-Mer, you ride along minor roads that aren't signposted, but you can download the GPX tracks. Make sure you avoid the county road, the D514, not suitable for cycling along.
From Courseulles to Ouistreham, you alternate between roads shared with motorized traffic through the coastal villages and cycle lanes along the sea front. Signposting is in place, but keep your eyes peeled for the changes in direction.
