51,18 km cycling route from Boulogne-sur-Mer to Calais

After Boulogne-sur-mer, La Vélomaritime takes you to the Grand Site de France des Deux-Caps. In Wimereux, admire the colorful Anglo-Norman style villas. Before reaching Cap Gris-Nez, the closest point to England, plan a stop at the Maison du Site des Deux Caps in Audinghen, a must for the discovery of this exceptional site. Take advantage of the magnificent viewpoints on the Cap Blanc Nez and the Bay of Wissant. Calais is worth the detour, take advantage of being on a bike to visit the city and discover the belfry of the Town Hall, the City of Lace or for an unusual trip on the back of the Dragon!

The route

From Boulogne-sur-Mer to Wimereux, ride along the cycle lane beside the RD940 road. To cross the Espace Naturel Sensible des Dunes de la Slack, cycle facilities have been made between Wimereux and Ambleteuse.
Up to the entrance to Wissant, you ride along rural paths, but at the southern and northern entrances to the resort, there are no provisions for cyclists, so you have to cycle along the RD940 road itself.
After Wissant, you reach Escalles via small roads shared with motorized traffic, then you rejoin the RD940 road before Blériot Sangatte. Finally, you can make use of the facilities for cyclists set up in and around Calais."
