While awaiting a fuller connection to other Breton routes, from Férel (west of La Roche-Bernard on the Vilaine River), a slightly hilly cycle route takes you along quiet roads and tracks to Pénestin at the Vilaine’s estuary. The Pointe du Scal Headland makes for a particularly special stop on this stage split between countryside, riverbanks and the ocean’s edge.
