Title: Calais to Paris
Post by: breadmakerreview on September 21, 2010, 05:37:04 am
Hi,

Me and a group of fiends are thinking of getting the Ferry over from Dover to Calais and cycling to Paris via Brugge. Has anyone done this route? We were thinking perhaps to stop off at Brugges as well but see how we go. If anyone has any advice or tips let me know.

Joe.

From Calais to Brugges you can, if I remember correctly, use the North Sea Coastal Cycle Route.   It's a bit obscure in places but is generally a good ride on paths and cycle routes.   You follow th coast to Dunkirk then turn inland and follow a canal pretty much all the way.   Don't know what your plan is for accommodation but there is only one camp site in Brugges and it's quite a nice one.   

Can't help with the route to Paris after that as I was headed on down the coast.   

Have fun!
