You wont find a better place in France to base a cycling holiday.
Hopefully the following will help you decide on Gouarec;-)
People staying at Gouarec on one of our fixed centre camping or Gite based tours will have all these routes and more to choose from. But one of our aims at Breton Bikes is to encourage people to visit the undiscovered heart of Brittany, nothing will help our business more than having loads of holidaying cyclists boosting the local economy and giving cycle touring a very positive image in the area. To help this we are slowly adding to a list of detailed cycling routes all based from the centre of Gouarec - a village uniquely well placed to explore Brittany and of course our own base for the last 29 years. They vary from the easiest 6 km potter along the cyclepath to 100 km+ tours but there should be something for everyone. We hope that the following routes will encourage more and more people to come and fall in love with the place as we have done - read, use, share and enjoy;-)
