24,97 km cycling route from Cany-Barville to Fécamp

On this stage, you head towards the coast and Fécamp, a port closely associated with Normandy’s dukes. Leaving behind the Pays de Caux’s plateaux with their flax fields, discover the Valmont Valley. Savour the peaceful Valmont River, lined with fish ponds and with deck-chairs dotted around, allowing you to enjoy a relaxing break in the sunshine. The peace and quiet of the countryside around Fécamp allows you the time to mull over your bucolic cycling trip through Normandy’s flax country. Then Fécamp comes into view, set in a gap in the cliffs. Enjoy the many different aspects to this port so closely linked to the Channel.

The route

From Cany-Barville up to the entrance to Fécamp, the route is entirely along a former railway line transformed into a greenway. However, be aware that the old level crossings have been kept in place to allow cars to cross. At the level of Colleville, you do need to ride along a stretch of road shared with motorized traffic for a few hundred metres.
