publishers of the Red Dog guides to Brittany


The first two editions (2010 and 2014) established Brittany's Green Ways as essential reading for off-road cycle-touring in Brittany. This 3rd updated edition includes information on later developments of the Green Way network.

The Blavet canal from Pontivy to Hennebont and the Green Way from Ploërmel to Messac are now mapped and described in detail. Two ‘Stop Press’ items - the completion of the V7 to Concarneau and of the V8 route on the Morbihan portion of the Rigole d’Hilvern (both occurring in 2016) - are noted and their implications assessed so that readers will be able to take them into account when route planning. The listing of ‘other cycle routes’ also includes some newcomers.

The list of accommodation providers has been updated to reflect changes of availability.
