I’ve planned the route for the second day of my challenge which would be on Sunday. This probably going to be the most enjoyable ride of the trip. First it will be Sunday so the traffic will be very light, secondly I’m going to have the whole day to ride 70 miles which is going to be a slice of cake compare to day 1 Time-Trial to Newhaven, and finally the road looks pretty nice.
Day 2 I’m cycling from Dieppe to Beauvais via the Avenue Verte, Forge-les-eaux, Gourmay-en-Bray, Villambray, Savignies.
From Dieppe I’m starting straightaway on the Avenue Verte for almost 30 miles to Forge Les Eaux. The Avenue Verte is a brand new large bike and pedestrian path along a former rail route. It’s all going to be very green and nice, this is definitely going to be the most enjoyable part of the trip! For the little story, The Avenue Verte was first built to link London to Paris to offer a bike path between the 2 cities. Obviously the route is not over, and on the British side is not so good as it’s still a trail more than a bike path. For the mapping between Dieppe and Forge les Eaux via the Avenue Verte I’m using this dude guide. Pretty well done.
Day 2 should be nice then, the route looks easy and not hard, I shouldn’t get lost. Just need to find my hotel in Beauvais, but thanks God, now we’ve got Google Street View so I managed to point it out.
6 days before the big day!!
