A safe place to ride
The Avenue Verte
The Avenue Verte is without a doubt the perfect itinerary for exploring the region’s inland scenery. Laid out on a longer route connecting Paris to London, it follows an old railway track along 45 kilometres between Dieppe and Forges-les-Eaux. You can travel this course during a full day outdoors, rolling at a speed of 10 kph, but to add more discoveries to your excursion, read on for our tips!
The route to Saint-Vaast-d’Equiqueville offers a relaxing getaway for the family. Ride along lovely bodies of water for 14 kilometres and then leave the Avenue for a cultural stop at the Château d’Arques-la-Bataille or the Saint-Nicolas-d’Aliermont Clock-Making Museum. The Guy Weber Nature Education Park is a beautiful spot to break for a picnic. It also offers a cafeteria, gift shop and play area.
If you would rather keep pedalling, Mesnières-en-Bray is 10 kilometres farther along. Its Renaissance château and the restaurants lining its streets make it an ideal place to stop before heading back to Dieppe. From there, you can even board a ferry and try out the Avenue Verte in England…
