Bike Touring Highlight
The Pont Saint-Hubert, a suspension bridge supported by two mighty pylons, spans the Rance between Port-Saint-Hubert (which belongs to Plouër-sur-Rance) and Port Saint-Jean (La Ville-ès-Nonais) in Brittany. The bridge connects the left bank of the Rance in the department of Côtes-d'Armor with the right bank in Ille-et-Vilaine. The predecessor of the present bridge, built at the beginning of the 20th century, had been destroyed by bombardment during World War II; It took until 1959, until at the same place a new bridge was built. Point Saint-Hubert gradually lost its importance as an important traffic route over the Rance with the opening of the Barrage between Dinard and Saint-Malo in 1968, and finally with the construction of the Pont Châteaubriand a few meters downstream, which was opened in 1991 for traffic , For cyclists, however, the Pont Saint-Hubert is all the more attractive.
