The second stage of the Véloscenie; a taste of Normandy between Alençon and Mont St Michel

New for 2018

Stage 2

For a real taste of Normandy: this is calvados and camembert country, the second stage of the Véloscenie can be combined with the first stage or it can stand alone as a wonderful short cycling break.  The route starting in Alençon, the capital of Normandy and finishing at the spectacular Mont St Michel is a peaceful mix of ‘Voies Vertes’ and impressive natural parks dotted with pretty little villages along the way.  

Discover stage 1 - Paris to Alençon
