Along the veloroute, Arques la Bataille


Another cycle trip. I had read about the new ‘Avenue Verte’ from London to Paris and fancied trying it. However, I was not so bothered about the London to Newhaven bit, having cycled much of this area, so I took the train to Newhaven and the ferry to Dieppe and started there – Dieppe to Dieppe, via Paris.

It was great fun and the veloroutes were often marvellous. I wasn’t so impressed with the final stretch into Paris, though, and would recommend an alternative (via Bois de Boulogne). The above picture was taken near Arques la Bataille.
