Lillebonne
With this stage, leave behind Jumièges and ‘the most beautiful ruin in France’, as Victor Hugo described its abbey, to continue west along the Seine à Vélo via a former rail line, now a greenway, connecting Caudebec-en-Caux to Barentin. Arriving at Caudebec-en-Caux, make the most of the calm of the Seine’s banks, following in the footsteps of Victor Hugo. Reaching Villequier, where the Hugo and Vacquerie families holidayed, this charming village makes a perfect place to pause and find out more about the great author’s writings. This stage’s last stretch leads to Lillebonne. This town has an older, Roman name, Juliabona, hence the remnants of a Roman theatre, plus a museum covering the history of the Gallo-Roman settlement here.

The route

From Jumièges to Yainville, you cycle along a minor road not used by much traffic. Once at Yainville, you join a greenway taking you to Le Trait, then on to Caudebec-en-Caux.

Next, a cycle track carries on to Villequier, where you join a new greenway along the former towpath going on to Petitville. You then join a road to Lillebonne.
