But what else can I do?
This is good for 30min./1h of your time, but guess what? We do offer you a perfect deal for your nice sunday morning!
Go to Saint Leonard from Edd Hostel by bike!
From Edd Hostel to St Leonard by bicycle, we highly recommend you to stop by one of our little jewel of Dol’s area: “The Menhir of Champ Dolent”.
So basically, this trip takes around 30min. by bike all the way from Dol to Saint Leonard.
From Edd Hostel, take the road that follows Combourg’s direction, it’s easy and direct! Count 2km to reach the Menhir. When you see it’s sign on the road, turn left, then you’ll easily spot it in your vision field! If you brought some water or drinks with you aswell as little snacks, you can rest there for a bit if you like to! It’s super peaceful as it’s in the countryside, and there’s banks for you to sit on while enjoying the view on the menhir.
Afterwards, when you feel ready, hop back on your bike and return on the little road that you juste left, and continue till the rond-about. Take the frist road on the right.
Be careful, at some point it might get busy on that road, so make sure to keep safe and stay on the right-hand side of the road! But do not worry, cars here are used to bicycles and people doing bike trip in Bretagne :p , so it will be fine for sure as long as you follow those simple instructions!!
Pretty easy for this part, it’s a straight line for about 4km! You shouldn’t worry about getting lost here :p . So, when those 4km are done, you’ll find at some point a road on your left with a sign writtin on it “Cuguen”. Follow this smaller road till the end of it. Within 2min. you’ll reach a crossroad, and from that point on you’re almost there! Turn right and go on till the 2nd road on your left! There, you just found Saint Leonard! Its sunday market takes place right around the main church of the village, you can’t miss it!
Now you can just chill and relax, like adviced earlier!! :p
Hope you found this bike trip in Bretagne amazing!!
