Around cliffs, forests and bocage, Saint-Brieuc's mountain bike centre has 500 km of waymarked tracks, split into 22 trails for addicts or laid-back leisure seekers.Get your helmet on, and don't forget your water bottle. Set off for a great session of climbs and downhill sprints on one of the most beautiful mountain biking areas in Côtes d’Armor! Around Saint-Brieuc, almost 500 km of safe biking routes wind their way around a refreshing mosaic of countryside. Dunes, grasslands, rivers... Castles, chapels, bouchot mussels... There are 22 wooded trails to try out, between nine and 40 km long, from six departure points: the Maison de la Baie (Hillion), the hippodrome (Yffiniac), the Pont Noir (Ploufragan) etc. Colour-coded signs indicate the four levels of difficulty. Green for family trails with no steep gradients. Blue for circular routes. Red for more technical, challenging trails. And even black for "pro" circuits, designed for thrill-seeking mountain bikers.
