New France bike route

This item appears on page 30 of the February 2022 issue.

A 250-mile bike route following the river Seine in France from Paris to Rouen to the shores of Le Havre, Normandy, was completed in 2020. La Seine à Vélo is split into 12 stages — the longest being 29 miles — all suitable for casual cyclists. Along the way, riders will encounter historic châteaux, market towns, parks, gardens and more.
