TINTENIAC


A TOWN IN THE COUNTRY

Tintniac is a rural town with a population of 3,327. It is located 28 km from Rennes, 42 km from Saint Malo, 23 km from Dinan and 12 km from Combourg (the closest railway station). The Ille et Rance canal, which connects the Atlantic Ocean (at Redon) to the Channel (at Dinard), flows through the town.

Tintniac has a park suitable for caravans and motor homes, two campsites, three hotels with restaurants - la Guinguette, lHtel des Voyageurs, le Relais des Onze Ecluses, two pizzerias, a creperie, a caf, a supermarket and a magnificent 100 year old church illuminated at night which is well worth a visit. 2015 will see the 18th PBP. Tintniac is the third control on the way to Brest at km 365, as well as on the return to Paris at km 858. We are located between the control of Fougres, about 52 km away, and the control of Loudac, 80 km away.

Tintniac and its cycling club lACIR have hosted PBP since 1979 and it will be the tenth time in 2015. The Amicale Cyclos de lIlle et Rance, which is affiliated to the French Federation of Bicycle Touring, was created in 1972 and is consequently 42 years old. It has 50 members, 10 of whom are women.

150 volunteers will work together to validate the riders cards. We will also be in charge of food, sleeping facilities (150 beds), mechanical help and medical care (with the help of first-aiders). We will put up signs for the riders and regulate the comings and goings at the school house where the control will be located. We would like to thank in advance the City and its Maintenance Department, the School of Bel Air who will host you in 2015, and all volunteers and ACIR members who will be working around the clock. The ACP board can rely on us !
