Surface of the stage
The east-west direction from Roscoff allows you to make the most of the proximity to the sea. A route marked only on shared low-traffic roads, with two passages on agricultural roads and a section of bicycle path.
Relief pronounced before Guillec Cove in Créac'h Bihan.
Bicycle path in Plouescat going down towards Kernic cove.
Strong relief around Lochrist where the road is otherwise narrow. It will therefore be necessary to be vigilant here.
Links between the V5 coastal cycle route and the Brest harbour
From the coastal cycle route, cycle links connect the Channel coast to the bay of Brest:
- From Goulven, a link leads up to Lesneven and then to Landerneau, Drennec, Brest or the Abers region.
Mainly on shared roads with occasional relief.
- From the port of Aber Wrac'h, the Abers cycle route (35 km) provides a quiet link between Brest, via Landéda, Lannilis, Plouvien, Plabennec, Le Drennec, Gouesnou and Brest.
Old railway, alternating asphalt roads and developed roads, very little relief, easy.
In the 19th century, a railway occupied the area and saw daily shipments of vegetables, shellfish and other goods passing between Brest and the port of Aber Wrac'h. The so-called "potato train" also took the people of Brest to the beaches on the north coast at weekends, before the railway was finally dismantled at the end of the Second World War.
