Day 1 - Amiens - Le Crotoy

Don’t leave Amiens without visiting the cathedral, a magnificent 13th Century Gothic monument that miraculously avoided being bombed. You can also take a stroll through the city to experience its half-bourgeois, half-working class atmosphere before you climb aboard your bikes. Head for Abbeville, with its post-war architecture, then take the D941 and stop off at the abbey of Saint-Riquier, a flamboyant mix of Carolingian and Gothic styles. Continue along the small country roads until you get to Auxi-le-Château, where you can admire the Neo-Gothic town hall and the small church of St. Martin. The D224 will then take you to Valloires Abbey, a former Cistercian convent where guided tours are available. After Crécy-en-Ponthieu and a trip through its forest, go through Rue and admire the mediaeval ruins of the belfry and its timber-framed houses. You will arrive in Le Crotoy, Enjoy your evening in this charming port.

Day 2 - Le Crotoy - Amiens

Time to get the bike out again for a morning’s ride along the coast, through villages and little ports. Travel along the Bay of the Somme and soak up its vast expanses that seem to connect the earth and the sky. Stop a few kilometres further down in Saint-Valery and enjoy a coffee in this busy marina, a hit location for bikers. Taking the Cap Hornu route, pass alongside Cise Wood and check out the pebble beach before taking the road to Eu and Le Tréport. The town itself is nothing to write home about but the road running through it leads to the spectacular chalk cliff faces of Côte d’Albâtre until Mesnil-Val, then Criel-sur-Mer, which sits atop the highest chalk cliff in Europe. Open up the throttle for a few kilometres on the D16 then ease off as you arrive at the forest. If you have time, stop in to visit the feudal château at Rambures. You can then pick up the run of the Somme after Oisement and Hallencourt, which will take you back to Amiens.
