2020 marks the 76th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy. On June 6, 1944 – 150,000 British, Commonwealth and American troops waded ashore and confronted the German guns. Within the month, one million Allied troops had landed in France. This tour commemorates the landings via a series of special rides taking in the beaches of Sword, Juno, Gold, Omaha and Utah. Today these beaches are a picture of tranquillity. To cycle the coastal road here is a real treat enhanced by turning inland and taking in country lanes, rustic villages, remote dairy farms and orchards. The experience dinners and strategic lunch stops. Peter at World At My Cleats has ridden in Normandy and Brittany for more than 10 years. He runs a London-based travel agency and has now branched out to offer cycling holidays.
