EuroVélo 4 and Tour de Manche

The Tour de Manche is a 1,200 km cross-border itinerary linking Normandy to southwest England, via northern Brittany. It crosses the French department of Manche, from north to south, from Cherbourg and its large harbour to Mont Saint-Michel and its bay.

The Petit Tour de Manche is a journey through two UNESCO World Heritage sites: Mont Saint-Michel and the Jurassic Coast of Dorset. It crosses the Vire Valley, the Regional Natural Park of the Bessin and Cotentin marshes (Marais du Bessin). It also offers a stopover in Jersey and a chance to visit the D-Day landing beaches.

Connected to EuroVélo 4, it can be looped on the east coast of the Cotentin to reach Barfleur, one of the most beautiful villages in France, cross Sainte-Mère-Eglise then overlook the bay of Saint-Vaast and the island of Tatihou, protected by the Vauban Towers, listed as a World Heritage site.

It also leads to the west coast of Cotentin, the Islands Coast (côte des îles) and its vast beaches: Lessay, Portbail, Barneville... here, the Channel Islands are within reach!

From the D-Day landing beaches in Normandy to the Mont Saint-Michel and the Véloscénie

From Utah Beach, the mythical beach of the Normandy D-Day landings, criss-cross the Cotentin marshes before following the Vire valley on a green path that covers more than 60 km. Stop at the Haras National in Saint-Lô or at the lookout of the rocks of Ham.

Strolling along the green path between the hills of the Mortainais, join up with the Veloscénie which links Paris to Mont Saint-Michel to pedal along its last 2 stages and discover this marvellous site!
