Following the towpath
On foot or by bike, the canal towpath is a great place for cycling with the family or for sports enthusiasts as the towpaths are flat – well, almost!
The paths are well-maintained and you can measure your progress by counting the locks! So if you want discover Brittany from the interior, this is definitely the place to do it.
The towpaths have been made up and are safe for both cyclists and walkers - ideal for holidays solo, with family or friends but above all, ideal for doing things at your own pace.
In Kreiz Breizh, the paths along the canal are relatively flat, with the locks marking the slight differences in level, making this section of the canal suitable for families, for little legs on little bikes and bike strollers.
