Hugh wrote to ask about cycling routes from Avignon to northern France.
I hope you don't mind my writing to you like this – I thought you may be able to help my wife and me.
We are fairly experienced cyclists, having done quite a lot of cycling in England and Scotland. I am 68 and Annie is 62; ee are both pretty fit.
In May we are taking our bikes down to Italy, near Sienna, by train and then want to cycle back as far as we can in about 11 days.
I am thinking we might find a train to somewhere like Avignon and then go due north, finishing up on the Avenue Verte, as we live in Brighton. Do you havbe any suggestions as to routes?
I look forward to hearing from you.
With best wishes,
See also this forum, where this exact topic was discussed.
It would be great to hear how you get on and which route you decide to take – you can't really go wrong as France is such a lovely place to cycle (though be wary of the hills as you cross through the centre).
If I can help further, please let me know,
