At Vivier-sur-Mer, to avoid passing via the small industrial estate (zone artisanale), go via Rue des Ecoles. After this, the way is easy. You simply follow the Vélomaritime logo to reach the Normandy county of Manche. Take care at Cherrueix, close to its windmills – dismount to get onto the sea wall. Then cycling straight on, you arrive in the county of Manche. A footbridge allows you to cross the Couesnon River at Moidrey.
At the level of Vivier-sur-Mer, you can head inland for the historic small town of Dol-de-Bretagne (c.10km away), designated a Petite Cité de Caractère for its rich heritage, with a halt along the way on Mont-Dol, a hill that offers exceptional views over the marshes and the whole Bay of the Mont Saint-Michel.
At the level of the footbridge over the Couesnon River, you can reach the centre of the town of Pontorson, which has a train station (4 km link)."
- Nearby train stations: Dol-de-Bretagne, la Gouesnière and Saint-Malo.
