  • Day 1

    Arrival in Bayeux + Excursion à Arromanches and Gold Beach | 44 km

    Wander through the narrow streets of Bayeux and admire the stately merchant houses. Visit the cathedral of Notre Dame, a jewel of Romanesque architecture. The town houses one of the most impressive Norman/Romanesque historical treasures: the Bayeux Tapestry. This long-embroidered linen cloth was stitched in the 11th century to recount the events of the Norman conquest of England in 1066 by William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy. For your first bike excursion, ride towards Longues-sur-Mer and its impressive German defensive battery, then continue on towards Gold Beach and, of course, Arromanches, Here you’ll be able to see the remains of the enormous artificial port constructed on the orders of Winston Churchill. Don’t forget to visit Arromanches 360°, a circular cinema which graphically illustrates the complete history of the Battle for Normandy. Come back to Bayeux riding through the Normandy countryside, biking down little lanes between the pretty hedged fields – the 'bocage'!

  • Day 2

    Excursion to Omaha Beach | 53 km + option 14 km

    Cycle to Vierville-sur-Mer and Omaha Beach, often called ‘bloody Omaha’ as the heaviest allied losses were suffered here. At the top of the cliff the American cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer dominates the beach. Row upon row of headstones surrounded by emerald green grass and the ever-present sea create a sense of peace and serenity. Return to Bayeux after an optional visit to the Overlord Museum. You can extend the circuit by visiting La Pointe du Hoc cliffs (30 meters high). Today one can still easily see traces of the damage caused to the fields by shell fire from the allied ships in the channel.

  • Day 3

    Excursion between Seulles Valley and Norman 'bocage' | 44 km

    Your final bike tour takes you along beautiful country lanes typical of the Bessin to see the Abbey of Juaye Mondaye. Founded in 1202 by the Premonstratensians, who are still in residence, the existing buildings are in the 18th century classical style. Continue on exploring the lovely views of the Seulles valley with its small lanes which criss-cross this appealing livestock farming country.
