Lannion / Perros-Guirec La Vélomaritime / EuroVelo 4
2 h 32 min
I cycle often
You leave the historic town of Lannion via its Brélévenez Quarter, looking down on the centre. You then cycle on through an iconic section of the Vélomaritime route – the Côte de Granit Rose, famed for its highly colourful rocks sculpted into extraordinary shapes by the elements, plus with the national nature reserve of Les Sept-Îles out to sea. Do take the link to extraordinary Ploumanac’h, making the most of stops beside remarkable sandy creeks along the way.

- on the steep slope at the end of the stage, to be tackled with caution, in part as there's a Stop sign during the descent, before you arrive at the RD6 road
Link: from Perros-Guirec, a signposted link scarcely 3km in length to Ploumanac'h, a resort that epitomizes the extraordinary Côte de Granit Rose
