Bike Touring Highlight
The Cuttlefish originates west of the village of Petre in Ille-et-Vilaine, in a small pond near the locality of L’Epine Houget, at an altitude of 167 m.
It passes in total through twenty-six municipalities, ie twenty-four municipalities located in Ille-et-Vilaine and two municipalities in Mayenne.
We cannot dissociate the cuttlefish from the exploitation of the Pont-Péan mining site which has shaped it since 1729, and this for two centuries. Period of combat with and against water, especially with its bed, first channeled from the confluence of the Vilaine to the castle of Carcé, then diverted by a channel from Carcé to Pont-Péan.
