Surface of the stage
The junction between Véloroutes 2 and 3 is at Mottay Lock, c.3.5km before Evran.
You follow a disused railway line between Trévron and the D20 road linking Médréac and Bécherel. The stretches of shared roads are generally peaceful and easy to cycle along, although there are a few slopes that may discourage inexperienced cyclists.
Note some dangerous crossings early on this stage – at the D26 and D12 roads, visibility is poor and some vehicles go fast. Take care at the entrance to Médréac on the D21 and at the entrance to St-Méen, where the signposting for several different cycle routes can be slightly confusing.
It’s possible to reach Bétineuc’s outdoor sports and recreation centre from Evran or Saint-André-des-Eaux (with bathing, sailing, canoeing, fishing, mini-golf, etc, on offer).
