This stage is well signposted all along the way, but make sure you’re following the signs marked ‘V2’. Virtually the whole stage is along specially dedicated cycle lanes. The surface along the towpath is of compacted sand and fairly easy to cycle along, but look out for furrows caused by rainwater. As you arrive in Rennes, the cycle route becomes much busier.
