Tour de France? Old hat! There’s a new route on the block – the TOUR de MANCHE (Manche = English Channel, in case you forgot). It will be launched in due course.

We at Cycle Guides have been commissioned to write the official guide to this great itinerary. Apart from detailed mapping and route description, we’ll be singling out the very best hostelries on a superb route through some of the best bits of Dorset, Normandy and Brittany.

The Tour de Manche (TDM for short) links Weymouth with Poole with Cherbourg with St-Malo on a 250 mile round trip that represents the ultimate (long) weekend challenge! Or the most leisurely of saddle holidays.

We’re also having a cycle challenge along the route. Come and join our 250 mile 4-day trip from shore to ship to shore. Details to follow shortly.

I look forward to adding lots of wonderful new routes to this cycle hub and to hearing your comments in due course. Cyclists – please keep your accounts of route experiences coming in. And advertiser, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with comments or observations.

Best regards,

Mark Porter
