- London to Paris bike route – 3 days
Hi chaps, I’m doing a London to Paris 3 day ride starting next Fri, via Calais and Amiens. I have a couple of reasonable looking route options, but if anyone has any GPX files or route tips from their own experiences it would be useful, as otherwise it’s a bit of a shot in the dark!
Any pointers welcome. 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Cheers, but we’re locked in to those waypoints so it’s that or nothing now!
I have found a few online resources with routes for those stopovers, but it’s hard to know without actually doing them what the roads will actually be like, hence a little nervousness about blind faith!Posted 5 years ago
I’m pretty happy with days 2 and 3 of the route, but if anyone has details or suggestions about the London to Dover leg, it would be appreciated. One of the links that hustler sent me looks very useful for that leg. My main hope is to stay off the A2 as much as possible. Any pointers welcome!Posted 5 years agoflipper29Member
I did this a couple of years ago and have gpx files from Calais via Amiens to Paris (directly and via the Thiepval monument which is well worth going to if you have the time).
My main advice would be to choose your route into Paris very carefully as Northern Paris is probably the dodgiest place I’ve ever been.Posted 5 years ago
Thanks, anything you could send my way would be really appreciated, as I’m still finalising details. Email in profile.
Point taken about the ride into Paris, I’ve found a pretty good looking option that is a few miles longer than the alternatives, but cuts in from the North West on what look like better (and hopefully more scenic?!) roads, but it’s still hard to know until we’re actually there.Posted 5 years ago
