Guipry-Messac
After enjoying a tour of Rennes, the lively Breton capital, head out of town to follow the route along the Vilaine River. The way out of Rennes is gentle, taking you close to Apigné’s recreational lakes. Then, passing through Pont-Réan and Le Boël you can fully appreciate the charms of the Vilaine Valley, with its former mills, its locks and its attractive villages. The route is still being completed at time of writing, but is easy to follow.

The route

The surface is mainly of compacted sand which is not consistently maintained, so this stage is more suitable for hybrid bikes.

Take care where you have to cross the D434 and D39 roads.
