The tourist town of St-Malo has been a tourist hot spot for years. St-Malo citadel, or walled city, is an attractive visitor location with cobblestone streets lined with shops, bars, hotels, and restaurants. The modern harbor connects the citadel to the mainland making travel a bit more simple and stress free. Your adventure upon two wheels during your adventure tour will lead you along Brittany to the battlefields of Normandy. Travelling along the shoreline form St-Malo to Bayeux you will taste the flavors of the harbors, experience a piece of history as you pass through historic sites from WWII, and view ancient stone farmhouses and experience the striking landscapes.
St-Vaast is a beautiful and very special marina surrounded by stunning fishing boats and quaint views of the shorelines and fishermen landing and selling their catches. The bulk of French oysters come from this location so it is a must try on the menu for dinner or lunch during your visit. The sheltered location provides a beautiful, almost tropical vegetation creating a gorgeous backdrop for you to ride along and visit. Retreat to the lush Normandy countryside; enjoy a glass of fine wine, and flavorful cheeses and caviar.
Continue your French Bike Tour to the town of Bayeux. Visit the historic sites of the D-Day Beaches, guided tours of historical WWII sites, and visit the Bayeux Cathedral which towers over the entire town. Relive William the Conqueror’s conquest of England as you walk along the colorful 230-foot Bayeux Tapestry that retells the story scene by scene.
