Véloroute Vallée de Somme
This route invites you to cycle up a river, the Somme, from its estuary to its source: what could be more exciting? Departing from Saint-Valery-sur-Somme in the Bay of the Somme, you head for Amiens and its famous cathedral. The National Véloroute 30 markers guide you as far as l’Aisne with its marshes and numerous canals (via a possible passage through the Art Deco city of Saint-Quentin, off course). The excursion ends in Tergnier where you can return by train or continue your adventure on EuroVelo 3. The Vallée de Somme Véloroute is therefore a great link between EuroVelo 4 which runs along the English Channel and EuroVelo. 3 which takes you either to Paris or to Brussels!"
