After having breakfast, get back to the Nantes-Brest Canal cycling route for a session where the time will just fly by. With kilometre after kilometre of peacefulness, you’ll go by the many locks, pleasure boaters just as relaxed as you, fishers, and local hikers. They’ll all be happy to share their little local secrets.
You’ll find the perfect picnic spot near Nort-sur-Erdre. For dessert, you have to make a stop at the Maison éclusière de la Tindière in Nort-sur-Erdre. It’s a place brimming with charm where you’ll find waffles, artisan ice cream, and local drinks from April to late September.
Get back on your canal cycle route for the final stretch, but go ahead and take a little detour at a place called ‘Le Lavoir’ (the washing place) to view the Erdre, a truly wild river that runs on the route. The Erdre flows through Sucé-sur-Erdre, a very pretty little town where you can sip a coffee on Cricklade Quay looking out at the boats tied up at the river port.
Continue on to La Chapelle-sur-Erdre, the final stop by bike of this second day. Then, get on the tram-train with your bike to reach the city of Nantes without any hassle.
Once there, you’ll easily find the lodging of your dreams to spend the night. You can choose a place with charm, something unusual, or an eco-friendly spot.
