Touring Brittany, FranceHi all,
Has anyone done a bike tour in Bretagne (Brittany), France? I am heading there on Saturday for a week. I live in Paris but know very little about the area (apart from maps and my guidebook).
Starting in Vannes and then heading along the coast. With a friend for three days then doing the rest of the time solo (my first solo touring). Any recommendations of places to see/go? Anyone else out on the road there next week?

1Years ago when the kids were kids and the wife & I were still a young couple we cycled the canal paths of Brittany, from Roscoff, stayed near Pont-Aven and ended in Saint Nazaire. We then took the train to Brest and cycled back to Roscoff to catch the ferry - a fantastic holiday. Put a basket on your bike to carry the wine, baguette & cheese for lunch. We stayed in small hotels or B&B and never had a problem finding a place even in August. Enjoy.
