The Tour de Manche is a 1200 km itinerary along the coast of Brittany, offering a succession of exceptional and iconic sites including the Pink Granite Coast and Cap Fréhel.

 

The cycling route links up Brittany and Normandy to Dorset and Devon, two very popular counties in the South-West of England.
The Petit Tour de Manche, takes cyclists on an epic journey to Mont St-Michel and along the Dorset Jurassic Coast, both listed World Heritage by UNESCO. The route offers a visit of the Emerald Coast, the Vire Valley and the Regional Nature Park of Cotentin and Bessin.
