Tour de Manche by bike
The Tour de Manche offers a unique maritime perspective over 1200 km of varied landscapes either side of the English Channel. Going at your own pace, you have the chance to take the time to discover natural locations of exceptional beauty and interest including Corfe Castle, Dorset and East Devon’s Jurassic Coast, Dartmoor National Park, the Pink Granite Coast and the Bay of Mont St-Michel. This route also builds in part of the existing European cycle route EV4 along the French coast and can be ridden in ‘bite-sized’ pieces, or for the more serious cyclist, as a complete tour. Most of the Tour de Manche route is on quiet roads, and it has been carefully marked out. Although challenging in parts, with a selection of testing but rewarding climbs for keen cyclists, it also offers sections of much easier riding that give you time to relax and enjoy beautiful scenery, culture and art of living in each country.
