Not-to-be-missed routes northern France?
Hey folks, just wondering does anyone know of any routes in Northern/North-Western France at all? I'm taking my bike over from Ireland by ferry to Cherbourg in a month, and driving back to North-East Holland where I'm living at the moment, want to make a little mini road trip out of it. May or may not stop by Paris too, if that makes a difference to my options of routes...
First time in France, can't wait...

I am amazed that you are not taking the ferry to Roscoff.
There s are literally loads of excellent rides in Brittany and Normandy right down to the Loire valley.

You could try the Michelin maps for the routes that have green (scenic) on them, but I have found that doesn't always work OK for the north - basically because it is so flat I think.

But, I am not sure what you want; if it is, say, history, you can tour the WW1 areas for ever and a day, such as near Bar du Luc and Verdun which are more to the East. For WW2 you can go via the beaches. All depends what you want to get done.

Hey cheers for the help folks. Actually ended up having to high tail it when I got over there, no time to spare so just took the motorways all the way to north Holland. Bestbikingroads.com is the way to go though.
