Brittany, Normandy; idea plea
« on: July 26, 2021, 04:15:59 pm »
Bonjour.

Want advice on cycling, 3Q21, Brittany/Normandy (including the factory, site visit, "Normandy hubs") WITH rental bikes.

One, rental bike vendors (Nantes, Dinan, Caen, Bayeux, Honfleur, etc.), value delivered. M/ANY (nice) rental tandems (we, two cyclotourists on the value prowl)?

Two, blue print cycling routes (i.e., published, shared, public travel route options from ~Dinan to ~Bayeux (approximate locations).

Three, ACA route map-like navaids (hi-res print preferred) for Brittany and Normandy.

Four, not-to-miss bike shops in Brittany and Normandy (for any reason, fetish, obsession, Louison-Bobet branded but Mercier bikes).

Five, information the on "Normandy" branded hub manufacturer. The factory site (live or dead). Better/worse than visiting the Campagnolo factories?

Six, actual experience summaries on travel routes, not limited to 'road conditions' (widths, surfacing, traffice volumes, topographic profiles, etc.).

Seven, 40-70 miles daily travel on (likely) crummy (rental) road bikes... need racks (F+R) to carry very minimal (hiking GR65) loads.

Eight, public transportation suggestions from NANTES, north, to Brittany and Normandy (to get to a start point, loop, or, out-and-back).

Nine, thank you for your considerable consideration, given message  L E N G T H. Sheesh.


All the Best,
Au revoir,
Adios,

Onward,
Yours awheel cycling,
Al

Hello,
Unfortunately, I am not able to help that much since this is primarily a website focused on ACA routes.  You might have better luck over on CrazyGuyonaBike.com or probably more European based cycling groups.

Tailwinds, John
