Cycling green avenue

Green Avenue

The Dieppe-Newhaven maritime route connects the two land routes of "Green Avenue", a cycling route between Paris and London. On the British side, the route allows you to appreciate the variety of atmospheres in the South of England: from Newhaven to Heathfield, the majestic coastline from Heathfield to East Grinstead, rolling countryside and forest landscapes predominate, when the arrival on Redhill sees succeed nature and urban territories.

South England


Bordered by the St. George's Canal and the Irish Sea, Wales is full of beautiful natural sites, including the Pembrokeshire Nature Reserve on the shore and the more rural Brecon Beacons. The city of Cardiff is confronted with architectural tradition and modernity, in a city famous for its castle, museums and rugby matches! Rich in Unesco World Heritage sites, the Province is marked by the history of its sites: the Middle Ages is represented by the castles of Gwynedd, dating from Edward I, and the nineteenth century by the presence of sites Blaenavon, where the importance of the Welsh Railway is measured, and the Pontcysyllte Canal Bridge.
