I am planning to do this in May for a charity event starting from Whistable , is this a route you have done your self? what did you do about sleeping? we were thinking of paying for a camper van to follow us or meet us, basically it would be great to hear about your experience with this ride.

I would have liked to have read more about the route, how hilly it is. I know that the section between Sangatte and Boulogne is hilly but what about the rest. On such a long ride, what was done about sleeping arrangements? Did you catch the train back to Calais? How much did that cost? Any problem taking the bike?

Planning to do this or similar in August. Is this an actual cycle route(off road) or just a directional map using quiet roads. Is there more accurate directions please?

Is there a detailed breakdown of the route please?

I was wondering how people have kept to the route without printing pages and pages of maps from here? Also has anyone camped along the route?

I followed this route as part of my trip from London to Paris, it's not too difficult as most of it is flat, I think the highest point is around 200 m, and there are no important climbs, even thought you'd need to go up the hill sometimes, they're quite gently.

My average speed was around 20km/h excluding stops and bearing in mind I was carrying 13kg in my bags.

The scenery is nice and it passes through some nice villages, I stopped at Montreuil sur Mer and Amiens which have interesting fortress, churches and a cathedral to visit. I need to say I was shocked by the calm in Montreuil, very quiet city, many bars/restaurants where closed, at least on the day I was there.

On the down side, the road, some of the roads have strong traffic, with frequent lorries passing by, and the road doesn't have any shoulder. ALL cars, lorries and tractors where nice to me giving me plenty of space when overtaking me.

From Clermont to Creil the track goes into a highway which I didn't take, and it was definitely my fault for not double checking so I did the last 60 km on small roads using my navigation system, and thanks God I got that!

I will be doing this route next year or a similar route but I'm finding it hard to find a more detailed route rather than a google map. I would be forever grateful for any links posted or email me at arcabarca@hotmail.com
