36,64 km cycling route from St-Malo to Evran

From the salty corsair city of St-Malo, a sea bus takes you across to the resort of Dinard. Then a greenway leads you south past villas, on to Dinan, a mighty medieval hilltop town. Next, follow the towpath beside the Canal d’Ille et Rance, either going to Mottay Lock (Véloroute 3) or as far as Evran (Véloroute 2). This stage takes you mostly along greenways suitable for all cyclists.

The route

This stretch is mainly along well-surfaced greenways, from Dinard to St-Samson-sur-Rance, then a bit after Léhon up to Evran. Note that there’s no signage in St-Malo and Dinard. You have to follow a stretch of shared road from the end of the greenway at St-Samson-sur-Rance up to the banks of the Rance at Taden.
Take care: crossing the D64 road at the locality of Bourgneuf, and crossing the D366 road near Pleslin-Trigavou.

Alternative routes

When the sea bus isn’t operating between St-Malo and Dinard (mid-Nov–start Apr), you will have to take the alternative cycle route along the Rance river (This cycle route is signoposted EuroVelo 4 / Tour de Manche)


A steep slope takes you up to the centre of Dinard.

Take the sea bus from St-Malo to Dinard

when possible to avoid the road over the Rance Dam. Of the two stops on the Dinard side, that at the Cale de la Vallée is preferable for cyclists, as the Cale Clair de Lune one has steps to negotiate.
