« TINTENIAC, A TOWN IN THE COUNTRYSIDE »
This charming town of 3,623 people is just 28 km from Rennes, 42 km from Saint-Malo, 23 km from Dinan and 12 km from Combourg (railway station). The Ille and Rance canal passes through the town connecting the Atlantic Ocean at Redon with the English Channel at Dinard.
TINTENIAC has a motorhome service area, two campgrounds, four restaurants and other fast food restaurants, a PMU, two shopping centers and a magnificent night-lit church to visit.
TINTENIAC is the event’s fourth control, at 362 km along the route on the way out and at 867 km on the return. The previous control, Fougères, is 54 km away, and then it’s just 85 km to the next control, Loudéac.
This year will be the 11th time TINTENIAC and its ACIR association has hosted Paris-Brest-Paris. The Amicale Cycliste d'Ille et Rance is affiliated to the FFCT and was created in 1972, 46 years of existence.
We will have a team of 150 volunteers to help the riders make it back to Paris. We will also provide bedding (200 beds), technical assistance, signage, traffic at LEP (reception and control point). Many thanks in advance to Bel Air high school that will welcome you in 2019.
ACIR volunteers and licensees will be on the ‘bridge’ to help out too. The municipality and its technical services will also be in support.
You can count on us!
