From Honfleur, the Seine à Vélo cycle route takes you on roads with little motorized traffic, going along the Morelle Valley. There is a sustained slope up to Saint-André d’Hébertot.
At St-André, you come to a greenway that will lead you the 9km to Pont-l’Évêque. Then the route takes you along roads with little motorized traffic up to Saint-Arnoult, and with very little by way of slopes too. You finish the stage via a greenway crossing the Deauville Hippodrome.
