49,62 km cycling route from Pourville-sur-Mer to Cany-Barville

From Pourville-sur-Mer, next to the port of Dieppe, the Véloroute du Lin takes you inland to Cany-Barville to start your discovery of the Pays de Caux area and its flax fields. First, though, you need to cycle through Offranville (a parish much appreciated by the artist Jacques Emile-Blanche), the tranquil Sâane Valley and the village of Luneray. Up to Saint-Pierre-le-Viger, the route leads you along a former railway track turned into a greenway; look closely to spot a few elements still in place recalling its past as a train line.

The route

Leave Pourville by joining the greenway from the beach car park (parking de la plage). This greenway takes you as far as Saint-Pierre-le-Viger, but you have to negotiate several level crossings that break up the route. Be careful of motorized traffic at these points. Along the early part of the route, you’ll need to tackle a significant slope taking you from sea level up to the plateaux that make up the Pays de Caux. Once you’ve reached Saint-Pierre-le-Viger, follow a quiet road up until Saint-Vaast-Dieppedalle, then you can rejoin a section of greenway taking you to the end of this stage.


From Cany-Barville, it’s possible to carry on cycling to Veulettes-sur-Mer.
