EuroVelo 12 - North Sea Cycle Route in France follows the same itinerary as EuroVelo 4 - Central Europe Route, from the Belgian border to Calais, where you can catch a ferry to the United Kingdom. When cycling along the coast do not miss Dunkirk (Dunkerque), a coastal city famous for its beaches and for the Battle of Dunkirk during World War II.

EuroVelo 4 & 12 / The Vélomaritime

The "Tour de Manche" and "Petit Tour de Manche" include the English Channel Coast to double the fun. The route will take you on a discovery of the Morlaix Bay, the 'Pink Granite' coast and the Mont Saint Michel bay, have you taste some delicious britanny 'crêpes' and cider and take a few dives in the sea. This route has a variety of undulations along the way (without posing major difficulties), and gives the cyclist the chance to enjoy both sport… and contemplation.
