Vire Normandie

32,73 km cycling route from Vire Normandie to Pont-Farcy

The Vire Valley acts as the thread along this Vélomaritime stage. After a stretch of greenway, you ride along minor roads through Normandy hedge-row-divided fields and valleys. With its ups and downs, this stage provides splendid views over the Vire's meanders and leads to La Ferrière-Harang, followed by the peaceful village of Pont-Farcy, nestled in a green corner beside the river. Highlight of the day is perhaps cycling under the grand Souleuvre Viaduct.

The route

From Vire to La Graverie, you ride along a stretch of greenway, then along minor roads shared with motorized traffic, crossing Normandy hills. This stage is more suited to seasoned cyclists, with some gradients over 15%.                         Take care before the Souleuvre Viaduct, at the point where you have to cycle along the RD56 road for several hundred metres.
