Cycling in Saint-Quay-Portrieux
EuroVelo is a network of long-distance cycle routes connecting and uniting the whole European continent. It consists of over 90,000 km of cycling routes, of which well over 45,000 km are using developed cycle paths and low-traffic roads.
Our coastline is abundant with rugged rocks and caves, and some sections of the route are challenging for bikes.
Bikes are not allowed on the coast path (GR34): it is only available to people on foot. Most of the route is also not suitable for cycling due to it being narrow with numerous steep ups and downs.
To prepare your travels, ask the Tourist Office for the maps which cover some sections of the route.
