Please kindly note that it is forbidden to ride with your bike on Les Planches (wooden board on Deauville's beach). You can walk alongside your bike on Les Planches, or continue along Les Planches by road, through the parking lot. Then, at the end of Les Planches, you can take the tarmac path along the sea, Boulevard de la mer.
On your right, take the tarmac road to get to the top of Mont Canisy. The slope is steep, it is time to boost the electrical power to the max!
The local forest ranger is watching you closely ... Bicycles are prohibited on small dirt and stony paths: endemic bird species are found there, as well as in the bushes. your bike could frighten them, as well as dogs, that must be kept on a leash. Stay on the main road to Mont Canisy. Pretty points of view are on the small paths. Attach your bikes, and you can get there on foot. Have a good walk on this hill full of history.
Here too, the slope is steep. Watch out for stones and the somewhat slippery and unstable terrain. If you don't feel comfortable, feel free to get off the bike.
When you go down the street, take the street on the left to stay on a two-way street.
Entrance price: 3.5 € per adult.
Summer opening (Jul 1 - Sep 11): every day from 11 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.
Do not cross the train tracks. Continue on the path then cross the small pontoon.
You will see the green area with the 'dead river' (Rivière Morte), and the white cycling barrier showing the entrance to the green cycling path. Go all the way and just before the end of the loop there will be 2 wide open gates and Deauville signposted, you will then follow the path along the Touques's horce races, up to Boulevard Mauger. A lovely and peaceful ride.
