A disused railway track now tarmaced, you can cycle in absolute peace and quiet amongst breathtaking scenery, stop off at little villages to explore and have a relaxing lunch.

The Avenue Verte is a varied route, I'm sure it's nothing more than a goat path in places, mud path in others, cobblestone, pressed gravel, smooth bike path, busy streets.... it's very diverse. If travelling in early off season, watch for the chestnuts that drop...More

We often come here when we are in the neighborhood. During the weekend is a little busier than during the week but you can always enjoy riding on a bike or taking a leisurely walk on it.

We took the avenue verte from Diepe to Forges les Eaux. The stretch between Dieppe and Arques la Bataille Is on public roads. From Arques to Forges the avenue runs along the track of a disused rail line. The signage in Arques is poor and...More

This route to Paris, along with the Hirsh route, is fantastic. We did it in 20 mile chunks with a hotel each night. Holiday of a life time.

A charming slice of the Avenue Verte route from London to Paris. Not too onerous if you're in the saddle, though the signposting could be better. The views are worth the aching muscles.

Really warm welcome to two female cyclists who'd disembarked in Dieppe at 4.30am and were in need of decent coffee and phone charge. Waitress picked up our water bottles and refilled them, unasked and with the warmest smile. We were given what we needed and...More

AdV provides superbly flat cycling through wonderful bucolic countryside. It starts at Arques la Bataille which is about 14km from Dieppe, although there is a traffic- calmed D Road to the start. There are some useful leaflets in Dieppe hotels with lists of cafes, B&Bs,...More

From Dieppe to Forges Les Eau via Neufchatel-en-Bray this old railway line is now a tarmac walk/cycle way. There are breaks in the areas it passes through. A café/bar/tourist info place at Sainte Saire is well worth a visit. Information boards are around on the...More

After having cycled over a long weekend from Dieppe to Forges-les-Eaux and back last year, four of us decided to try out the whole French side of the route from Paris back to Dieppe in September 2015. I don't know why, but this seems to...More

When approaching Paris, does it go through dangerous "banlieue"? Should I fear being attacked if I arrive a bit late in the day to Paris?
