At the crossroads of Western France’s waterways, at the junction of two of Brittany’s major bike routes – the Vélodyssée and the V42 – and straddling two regions and three départements, Redon is an essential stop for any two-wheeled traveller.

This Breton town has a rich medieval past, as can be seen by its Saint-Sauveur abbey (founded in 832), its Calvairiennes monastery, its timber-framed houses, and its port along the Vilaine River – which was once Rennes’ outport. Mansions, salt granaries, and other old buildings bear witness to Redon’s boom period.

Today, the town preserves and enhances the charm and serenity of its river and sea port. It’s an ideal starting point for cycling trips, whether for one day or longer.
