Stage 1: from Saint-Lô to Pont-Farcy - 30 km
Welcome to Saint-Lô, the capital of equestrianism and post-war reconstruction. As you leave the station, the River Vire stretches in front of you, at the foot of the unmissable stone walls. From here, you can head off on a walk around the town before getting on your bike. With its Haras National (national stud farm), art museum and good restaurants, Saint-Lô has plenty for you to enjoy.
To continue the adventure, head to the Voie Verte (greenway) for this first stage. You’ll pedal along the River Vire through peaceful landscapes on the way to Pont-Farcy. Horses, sheep, wildflowers and lush landscapes will accompany you along the way. Before finishing, take a short detour to the Roches de Ham, a unique site with a stunning view of the Vire Valley and the countryside around Saint-Lô.
Where to stay on this stage?
When you arrive in Pont-Farcy, the Cabane Étape awaits you. This unusual, low-cost and ecological accommodation has everything you’ll need for an overnight stay: power outlets, a table, lockable cupboards, and a skylight for stargazing. A cosy cabin for two on the banks of the Vire.
