Navigating
the Northwest

France is a motorcycling mecca. No matter where you find yourself, beauty abounds. Whether it’s in the sinuous curves and mountain climbs of the south, or along the rolling hills and seemingly never-ending vineyards in the champagne region, this country isn’t short of breathtaking places to ride. When touring, it’s easy for riders to overlook one area: Brittany.

This northwestern section is not necessarily a riding hotspot but has a lot to offer when you take the time to explore it. Motorcycle Diaries decided to hit the road to Brittany and pick out the must-sees that motorcyclists won’t want to miss. They embarked on 4-day, 950 km motorcycle tour guided by local guide, Barbara, who was born and raised in the region.

Medieval
City-hopping

After suiting up, the two riders headed south to the medieval village of Rochefort-en-Terre. After visiting France’s “Favorite Village of 2016,” they then went north via the curvy backcountry roads, winding through forests, acres of farmlands, and more quaint yet beautiful villages.

Countless twists and turns later, they finally arrived at the famous Mont Saint-Michel at the northern Atlantic coast. Dodging the hordes of tourists crowding this iconic village, they quickly escaped to the most northern point of the region: Cap Fréhel. Just in time to experience a spectacular sunset.

Curvy
Coastal Roads

Next morning, they headed west following coastal roads to the lighthouse of Pointe Saint-Mathieu. Along the way, they were greeted by stunning ocean views. And over the next few days, more motorcycle bliss followed while riding through the flowing hills of the Natural Parc of Armorique and circumventing the Mount Arrées. The highlight was the St-Michel chapel. Perched on top of an arid hill, it offers a beautiful panoramic view of the national park.

With no time to linger, they headed further south along the coastline enjoying the views, ports, and numerous lighthouses. Following the fantastic D186, they arrived at Brittany’s most southern peninsula: Quiberon Island. Unfortunately that also was the end point of their trip. Though, after four days of corner carving through fantastic landscapes with stunning views, they definitely proved a point: Brittany shouldn’t be overlooked and offers many little hidden gems to the rider that decides to explore this sometimes forgotten region. Check out their adventure below.
