Dieppe Channel Hopper

Cyclists on the Veloroute du Lin at Offranville

Seven of us have just returned from a very enjoyable channel hopper to Dieppe where we spent three days cycling through the countryside of Seine-Maritime. We cycled along the Veloroute du Lin, Avenue Verte and Eurovelo Route 4 as well as along many quiet country roads which were new to us. Places we visited included St-Valery-en-Caux, Neufchatel-en-Bray, Criel-sur-Mer and Envermeu.

As usual, we stayed at the Hotel de la Plage which now has a gym; there’s something new everytime we go to this hotel!

There’ll be a write-up of the trip in the Summer newsletter due out later this month.

Happy cycling,
