Tour de Manche: a cycling adventure in Devon, Dorset, Brittany and Normandy
The Tour de Manche is a cycling adventure which goes through Brittany, Normandy, Dorset and Devon.
The 1200km long route is not for the faint hearted, but it does offer a chance for pedal-powered exploration across some glorious countryside.
The journey is broken down into sections, like Le Mont-St-Michel to St Malo (a distance of 67.6km), or the 67km route between Plymouth to Okehampton.
The Tour De March site offers up information about each section, about the routes, and also including points of interest along with way, such as places to visit and farmers markets.
There’s also a section with practical information and FAQs to make sure your cycling adventure goes smoothly.
If you fancy something a little more manageable, there is the Petit Tour de Manch at 450km – but to cut the length they’ve excluded the Devon section, so we’ll let you explore that option yourself.
The route has been devised by 17 French and British partners, which in itself sounds no mean feat.
