7. Brittany's Sunshine Coast - Concarneau to Pont Aven (200km)
Concarneau, Brittany, France
RACE ACROSS VIRTUAL
A perfect summer's day for a flattish ride along this rugged French coastline. Starting at Concarneau’s 15th Century walled town (Ville Close) we soon pass through the fishing port, the third largest in France, then ride towards the coast with views of the blue sea, sand dunes and beaches. We then turn inland to ride through Nevez, ending in the picture postcard old port town of Pont Aven, home of many artists including Paul Gauguin who painted many famous scenes around the area in the late 1800s.
