La Côte des Mégalithes

Carnac, Brittany, France

Easy - New

We set off from a UNESCO World Heritage site, the prehistoric stone megaliths that scatter the countryside around Carnac. These megaliths are actually 2,000 years older than Stonehenge. After passing thousands of the stones we soon arrive at the Grande Plage and cycle alongside the beach until we reach the town’s harbour area. After crossing the bridge at La Trinité-sur-Mer we again take the coast road before finally reaching the small port town of Locmariaquer on a Saturday market day. Slow down for the pedestrians!
