BREST


At the Tip of Brittany (and of France)

Brest at the tip of Brittany - your Turnaround

At the midway point of the ride, Brest will be your unique opportunity to see the sea. Take a picture when crossing the Albert Louppe Bridge ! You will have a panoramic view of the town, the harbours, the bay and the Goulet, a 3 km long strait linking Brest to the Atlantic Ocean.

Having been faced with difficulties in 2011, we welcomed you in rather poor conditions at the premises of the Navy (we still thank them for their support). The City Council wanted a route to the commercial harbour and the castle, allowing you to better discover Brest. But it is undeniable that after 600 km of such a ride, tourism is not your main concern.
For the 2015 edition of Paris- Brest-Paris, we will change the checkpoint venue to better meet your expectations. We aim to improve the quality of care and to limit city riding. The Groupe Cyclotouriste Brestois as well as the neighbouring cycling clubs will make every effort to welcome you in the best conditions, with the support of the City Council. We hope that your short stop at our end of the earth will make you feel interested in returning to discover the rich heritage of Brittany.

See you soon and Degemer mad deoch e Penn ar Bed.
