The coastal bike route is part of the No. 4 EuroVeloroute between Kiev in Ukraine and Roscoff in Brittany. It crosses 7 countries over more than 4,000 km. 30 km of this route travel between Sangatte and Wimereux where you can admire the landscapes of the Site des Deux-Caps. Cycling is safe here, on side roads with light traffic and farm tracks shared with walkers and horse riders.
Here is the status quo for the different sections of the itinerary: the operational sections, the soon to be operational sections and other sections subject to studies with regard to the impact on the natural environment, requested by local authorities. You will also find information about the technical solutions which have or will be used for each section.
