Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in France on Monday, 20th-May-2019. Saint-Jouin-Bruneval to Pourville-sur-Mer. 64 miles. What an excellent day!
The day started off with the normal mist and low clouds, so I quickly rode through Etretat and Fecamp, as nice as they both are, there’s not really too much to see in the mist!
After looking at the map in Fecamp I decided to leave the coast and head inland a bit more. After all I’ve done the coast road a few times and it’s not exactly the easiest ride! Beside looking for an easier route I also wanted to go somewhere I’d not been before!
What an excellent choice it was, not only was it easier but I also found a cycle route or green ways as they call them here.
“Veloroute du Lin” which when it’s finished will go from Fecamp to Dieppe along the old railway line! It’s not quite finished yet, but about 90% of it is, and it’s all smooth asphalt!
And to finish the day off, the suns shining, and I’ve got a superb campsite for the night!
I’m pitched beside a lake and across the water I can see, a donkey, some ponies, goats, geese, ducks and their ducklings and a pair of otters!
