A circular 320km bike route from the Ouistreham port north of Caen out into the Normandy countryside.
The full route with route notes can be downloaded here.
The route covers around 320 kilometres of relatively flat countryside past farmers' fields, apple orchards and through beautiful northern villages.
The northern section of the ride is on mostly quiet backroads in an effort to avoid the busier sections of the coast which are popular with tourists. It does, however, stop in at Honfleur, a must-see for its pretty port and seafood.
For the eastern part, you follow the Risle valley, passing the area's famous half-timbered houses en route. Don't miss Falaise with the Musée Août 44 telling the story of the Battle of Normandy.
