Calais - Abbeville - 80 miles / 8 hours
After breakfast we begin the morning with a stretch of the legs, some warm up exercises and setting out on our first stretch of the open French roads. With long tree lined boulevards, quaint French villages and towns, we head South with Paris in our sights. Passing through the ancient town of Desvres, en route to Abbeville. Stopping for lunch, we set up a buffet lunch close to the route where we get the first chance to relax and enjoy the great French scenery. After lunch we set off for the final stretch of the day - setting off towards the town of Abbeville, which lies on the river Somme. Almost flattened to rubble during World War 2 - today the town is modern yet still retains it’s Flemish feel with an iconic Gothic church. Our we roll into our hotel, located on the outskirts of the town and enjoy a good French meal before collapsing into bed.
