Cycling along the Mayenne River Towpaths 24.04.2016

There is no better way to appreciate the unspoiled beauty of the Mayenne River than on a bike, pedalling along the towpath.

Stretching for 85kms, the path is flat and signposted with distances between points of interest, such as châteaux, villages and old watermills. Towns along the way include Mayenne, Laval, Château-Gontier.

This trail is part of the 'Vélo Francette ', a 615km-long cycle route, that links Ouistreham (Normandy) to La Rochelle.
