Ouistreham/Caen to Bagnoles de l’Orne
The route starts at the port of Ouistreham and continues south through the historic town of Caen. The first 20 mile are on a perfectly smooth, flat, traffic free cycle path called the Suisse-Normande route alongside the River Orne which will travels through some lovely scenery. After a late morning of rolling French countryside the route picks up the river again, with a lunch stop at a scenic spot in Clecy. After lunch the route gets much more demanding with a hilly end to the day travelling towards the Andaines Forest and the accommodation in the spa town of Bagnoles de l’Orne.
