Did you know? Normandy is the leading producer of flax in the world. The Véloroute du Lin route plunges you into the heart of the Pays de Caux, an area stretching south from the Channel to the Seine, full of flax fields, lakes, fish farms and watercress plots. The route offers an excellent alternative for families to cycling along La Vélomaritime (EuroVelo 4), the latter sticking closer to the coast. The best time to admire the flax is in June, when its little blue flowers emerge across a ten-day period… while you can still enjoy the sea at the beginning and end of the ride.

Signposting and state of The Véloroute du Lin cycle route

The route is signposted all the way along, in both directions, and makes good use of a former railway line linking Pourville-sur-Mer to Fécamp. 

On the section between St-Pierre le Viger and St-Vaast-Dieppevalle, as well as when crossing Luneray and Colleville, there are stretches shared with motorized traffic.

The surface is mostly tarmacked.

There are direct links to La Vélomaritime EuroVelo 4 from Pourville-sur-Mer and Fécamp.
