On a bike, the world is more beautiful. InDeauville, greenway, cycle paths and national cycle routes are a source of escape and contemplation for lovers of the ride and experienced cyclists. Smell the smell of sea spray from the long dykes along the seafront between Deauville and Bénerville-sur-Mer, watch the horses tread the track in a straight line at the Deauville-La Touques racecourse, criss-cross the paths of the Pays d'Auge with an inspired guide… The routes offer an overview of all the facets of the territory. So, all in the saddle!

 


Three cycle loops


The seaside from Deauville to Bénerville-sur-Mer, to feel the spray

Since Belgian Bridge, a hyphen that connects Deauville to Trouville-sur-Mer, a cycle path has been set up to go around the Deauville Peninsula, new district where it is good to stroll. On the east wing, the Banks of the Touques Park, the green lung of the city. Throughout its journey, the Touques estuary guides passers-by and offers an exceptional view of Trouville-sur-Mer, its fishing boats, its unmissable fish market and its imposing casino. On the west wing, the Morny basin, today highlighted with its new port buildings, including two belvederes located on each side of the basin and connected by a catwalks. Good news: the belvedere installed on the Presqu'île is open to the public and offers a breathtaking view at almost 30m in height!

Pass the footbridge to connect Port-Deauville and its marinas, then borrow the Boulevard Cornuché. Our advice: after passing the Lycée André-Maurois, access the dike. 770m long, it goes around the basin and the buildings with orange, yellow and blue facades. Continue to the tip to observe a majestic panorama of the piers and the beach of Trouville-sur-Mer.

To reach Deauville beach, note that the Promenade des Planches is prohibited for bicycles. However, it is possible to walk with the bike in hand. Don't resist the call to swim; put down your bike and taste the Channel water! At the end of the Boards begins the Promenade Michel d'Ornano which runs along the Sea Lais Park, followed by Promenade Louis Delamarre in Tourgéville where you pass in front of the imposing Villa Mors. Continuing straight, you will come to Bénerville-sur-Mer. Here, the atmosphere is family; evidenced by its large children's club and its inflatable games. Not far from here, vacationers bask on the beach at the foot of the blue and red cabins, which forge its identity. To return to your starting point, turn around and join the Beach Villa in Tourgéville to return to Boulevard Cornuché via the roundabout. A beautiful end to the walk punctuated by the many half-timbered residences and the historic Hotel Barrière Le Royal *****.

Connect Deauville and Saint-Arnoult by the greenway

On Boulevard Mauger, at the western end of theDeauville-La Touques racecourse, a small sign challenges the immensity of the racetrack. Above, we can read "Coastal cycle route. Pt L'Eveque - 17, Saint Arnoult, 3.5". Here begins the new Greenway which connects Deauville to Saint-Arnoult, at the gates of the tracks, where it is possible to see the horses at any time of the day: in training in the morning, in competition in the afternoon during the days of races. 4m wide, this promenade sees lovers on bikes, families on foot, children on rollerblades... and riders on horseback!

After following the long track in a straight line from the racecourse for 1600m, the greenway crosses the Deauville Intermunicipal Leisure Park. A paradise acclaimed by children and sports enthusiasts for its football and volleyball pitches, its many playgrounds, its hiking trails and its space devoted to the observation of trees of various species - reedbeds, birds and batrachians. The track then takes the banks of the Boucles de la Touques in Saint-Arnoult, where ducks and swans like to wade peacefully in the "Dead River". On the left, the stables and quarries of the Pôle International du Cheval Longines - Deauville reveal themselves; privileged access for the horses, which go to the beach every morning to take advantage of the benefits of seawater. To complete the loop, a new cycle path connects Deauville from the Saint-Arnoult tennis court via Strassburger Avenue and its famous eponymous villa.

Get drunk on nature at the Marais de Blonville-Villers

Hidden between Villers-sur-Mer and Blonville-sur-Mer, this green lung is one of the three hinterland marshes of Calvados. From the road connecting the two municipalities, it looks like a simple and vast field. However, this singular territory at the interface between the city world and the rural world is a refuge of biodiversity which extends over 120 ha and is traversed by canals, ditches, ponds, reedbeds and tarred paths conducive to walking and cycling. This natural area is full of beautiful discoveries for those who know how to look and, better, have brought their binoculars; not less than 1 amphibians, reptiles, birds and other species are listed in this Norman jungle. Spring is the peak season for the White Stork, the Tree Frog and the Marsh Populage.

The White Stork

She has been back in the marsh since 2012 thanks to the platform installed to the west to encourage her nesting. And it works ! Each year, 2 to 3 little storks from the same faithful couple fill out the pink notebook of the marsh.

April to July

The tree frog

Its particularity: it has the ability to climb on plants! The Rainette is not uncommon but knows how to be discreet. You can still enjoy his love songs while walking in the evening around the stork platform.

April to October

The Marsh People

From the same family as the Buttercup, the Populage des Marais illuminates places with its magnificent golden yellow from the start of spring and gives the signal for the start of fine weather. Affecting wetlands, it is preferably found in ditches.

March to May

 

A choice of three routes are accessible to bicycles and mountain bikes:

  • A walk that crosses the west of the marsh and bypasses The Paléospace and the large body of water where many birds nest – Distance: 1,2km
  • A circuit "around the marsh" which forms a loop and passes by the white stork platform – Distance: 4,2 km
  • A variant of this circuit which goes as far as the Augeronne countryside – Distance: 5,5km

The Seine by Bike, from the river to the English Channel

Join Deauville or Le Havre from Paris, without traffic jams, just by pedaling: a dream come true. Opened in October 2020, the Seine by Bike (V33) satisfies experienced cyclists and cycling enthusiasts looking for adventures on 420 km of cycle paths. Along the river, this new cycle route crosses eight departments, namely Paris, Seine-Saint-Denis, Hauts-de-Seine, Yvelines, Val-d'Oise, Eure, Seine-Maritime and Calvados. With each pedal stroke, the route reveals treasures at the crossroads of historical, architectural, cultural and gastronomic riches: Giverny and Honfleur, cradles of Impressionism, La Roche Guyon, the only "most beautiful village in France" in the Île-de-France region, Rouen, nicknamed "The City of a Hundred Bell Towers", Berville-sur-Seine and Jumieges linked by the apple, plum or cherry orchards of the Route des Fruits, Le Havre listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site or Deauville, its beach, its racecourse and its parasols, the long-awaited culmination of this adventure on two wheels.

La Vélomaritime, from Brittany to the Belgian border

It meanders through the most beautiful landscapes of three French regions, its marked and secure cycle paths extend over 1500 km, its sea route flirts with The English Channel and the North Sea ; she is the Velomaritime. From the corsair city of Roscoff in Brittany at the gates of Belgium in Dunkirk, the coast is sometimes steep, sometimes wild, sometimes escaped from the crowds but tirelessly reveals magnificent panoramas on the sandy coves with turquoise waters. This is how the cycle route crosses from east to west mythical natural and historic sites such as the Cap Fréhel, Pink Granite Coast, Mont-Saint-Michel and its bay, Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue and its Vauban Tower, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the shore to landing from Utah Beach to Sword Beach, the Côte Fleurie from Cabourg to Honfleur, the Etretat cliffs, Somme to finish on the Opal Coast. If many climbs and descents intrude on the course, the panoramas and beautiful windows on the sea will reward your efforts.
