Brittany Tour day 4 - Rennes to Malestroit

73 km Distance
560 m Ascent
580 m Descent

(1 rating)

After a day in Rennes, the next destination was Auray, and Malestroit was picked as an overnight stop. Malestroit turned out to be a nice place, popular with French tourists and on the Brest-Nantes canal. The first few miles out of Rennes is by a cycle track which is sandy in parts and could prove tricky with narrow tyres (ours were 38mm cyclocross type). The detour in Moredelles was to look for the Roman temple shown in a road sign, without success. It was later found to be behind the houses shortly after leaving the main road. Overall, one of the best days of the tour.
