Superb Cycle Path
Oct 2017 • Couples
Running from Caen to Thury Harcourt, over almost 17 virtually flat miles, with a few gentle rises, and quite possibly the smoothest surface of any cycleway we have ridden. The trail meanders along the often wooded Orne valley following the river course. It is extremely well signposted, plus distance makers (in km) every few hundred metres. However there are virtually no places to get a drink en route, so remember to take drinks with you. Combined with a lunch (from 12-2pm only) in Thury Harcourt, this is a really pleasant active day out from Caen. Of course the trail is also suitable for walking and rollerblading. It is possible to access the trail at a number of other points along its route.

Excellent path for cycling, walking and roller skating.
Aug 2017 • Couples
The Voie Verte de la Suisse Normande is one of the best cycle paths I have come across. It mainly follows an old railway route from Caen to Thury-Harcourt. With the exception of a couple of bridge it is essentially flat along the whole route. The quality of the path surface is excellent, good enough for in-line roller skating. The path is wide and the barriers to prevent motor vehicles can be cycled through with ease. The only major drawback is the lack of refreshment facilities along the route. On a hot day it is essential to carry enough water.
