A day's bike ride from Caen to Ouistreham

A green way from Caen to the sea

There are several cycling trails in Caen-la-Mer, with bike lanes, the coastal cycling path and several green ways, including the Vélo Francette. But today, we're setting off on the trail leaving from Caen city centre and taking us to Pegasus Bridge and the seaside resort of Ouistreham.

Early in the morning, we make for Pegasus Bridge and the Café Gondrée, the first house to be liberated in France. Here we can take the time to hear the story of the café and make the acquaintance of Madame Gondrée, the daughter of the owners at the Liberation. For lunch, you can take a seat on the terrace and try the one-minute house omelette!

Nature outing on the green way from Caen to Ouistreham

During this outing with your loved one, you can take the time to look at nature and take a break alongside the canal. If you continue on the cycling path, you arrive at the port of Ouistreham. A little further on, the Orne estuary and the Ouistreham Riva-Bella beach are a great place for a walk on the sand.

After a day out in nature, it is time to think about going home. The way back will definitely be just as enjoyable!
