30,06 km cycling route from Allineuc to St-Caradec

The Rigole d’Hilvern Channel was originally built to supply the Canal de Nantes à Brest with water. Today the path beside it has been turned into a lovely greenway. From Bosméléac Reservoir, a peaceful track lined by tall beech trees and chestnut trees meanders through the countryside, past Saint-Thélo and Le Quillio, historic villages that reflect the rich industrial past of the area, where fine linen cloth was manufactured.

The route

The greenway, with its compact track, is easy for anyone to use. This stage begins at the foot of Bosméléac Reservoir’s dam, at the car park. Follow the towpath beside the Rigole d’Hilvern. The greenway does switch from one side of the channel to the other from time to time and just occasionally crosses quiet country roads.
