Day trip to Lion-sur-Mer by bike


Take advantage of your stay in our hotel in Caen to discover the Normandy countryside by bike


Take the cycle route to Lion-sur-Mer

Thanks to the VéloFrancette, the cycle route linking Normandy to the Atlantic, cycle up the Canal de Caen à la Mer to the Normandy coast!

A walk of a little more than 1 hour over twenty kilometres, which starts on Avenue de Tourville (at the level of the Pont de la Fonderie, 4 minutes by bike from the hotel) with a lane equipped for bikes.

From here you will start your journey up the Canal de Caen à la Mer. You can enjoy the urban landscape before slowly leaving the city. You will reach the start of the greenway towards Ouistreham.

Stop off at the Pegasus Bridge which played a key role in the liberation of Caen during the Second World War.

Once in Ouistreham, you can continue your journey along the Normandy coastline in safety on the segregated bike lanes and traffic.

You will find several memorials along the way as you pass one of the D-Day beaches, Sword Beach, where the British and French forces landed:
  • Monument of the 70th anniversary of D-Day
  • Stele of the Franco-British commando n°4
  • Memorial of the Kieffer commando
Once you reach Lion-sur-Mer, you can admire the beautiful villas along the coast and the Maison La Bluette, a monument built by the architect Hector Guimard. Further on you will find the Confessional cliff with its caves formed over the centuries by the tide.

If you would like to learn more about the history of Lion-sur-Mer, go to the Lion-sur-Mer tourist office for an audio guided tour "La Délicate".
