    Bretagne (Brittany)

    The Brittany tourist office's efforts.

    Scroll down the page to the road books.

    I haven't got the .gpx downloads to open on my Mac in BaseCamp yet. I'm not sure why but the Google maps offered up would be easy enough for anyone to recreate in BaseCamp or Mapsource.

    Not working on Win10 either - "not a valid file."

    Similar message on my Mac, 'File could not be imported'.

    These appear to be xml files or similar that appear to have had there extensions changed to .gpx Inside is a combination of waypoints and straight line tracks, the only thing useable in these files are the waypoints, if anyone wants them give me a shout.

    There's some ideas on Brittany Ferries site too - https://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk/h...e-tours/france

    The maps are pretty useless except to give you a rough idea where the route brings you but the 'itinerary' tab gives some good info on places to go & things to see and the 'accommodation' tab, surprisingly , gives some accommodation hints
    Not quite as easy as downloading some of Wapping's routes to your steeds sat nav but sure, if it was all that easy where would the 'adventure' be
    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.

    I've been told one of the best roads in Brittany is the D767 from Guingamp to Vannes.

    I know one of the best roads is D785 from Morlaix to Quimper (although Quimper isnt the best town)

    Paimpol, Auray and Quiberon are gems and La trinite-Sur-Mer is also a nice stop

    The D767 is my fav local road from my little place in Brittany. I rode up and down it twice last week but starting just SW of Loudéac up to Guingamp and back . Still about 50km each way. Great fun .

    We have plans for later in the year to give it a try, probably stay over in Vannes and loop back up to St Malo via Dinan or some such like

    I spent an afternoon & the following morning in Parc d'Armorique and the D785 is indeed a cracking road. But there's lots of the smaller roads around it that are as good or better. And even quieter....
