Le Grand Tour: Day 22 – Morlaix – “If They Bite You, Bite Them Back”

CURRENT LOCATION: Hotel du Port, Morlaix

According to the bird’s eye view of Morlaix in the image below, that’s the motto of the town. Original, no? It’s been a hot day so far, despite Brittany being the cold corner of the map of France on last night’s TV forecast. I’ve returned to the hotel for a siesta… I’ll head back out soon for anothercwander. There’s a festival of all things Breton taking place in Place Allende this afternoon so I’ll perhaps update this later. (I have done!) In the meantime, note that episode 055 of The Cycling Europe Podcast was published this morning – part 4 of my ’Grand Tour’ series – so if you have 55 minutes to space… All the links can be found by navigating over to the podcast page of the website.

  1. Enjoy the canal. We did our distance of 100 miles on a similar route to yours down western France.
    The canal maybe split by a reservoir so boats cannot cruise full length.
