From Le Crotoy to Noyelles-sur-Mer you follow a cycle track crossing a hunting domain, taking you up to the entrance to Saint-Valery-sur-Somme. For the safest option for families, we advise you to tackle the last portion of this stretch aboard the Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme’s historic train. Arriving at St Valery-sur-Somme, get off your bike to cross the bridge over the tourist train line.
To get from St Valery to Le Hourdel, cycle along for 1.5km beside the canal to reach a cycle track taking you on to La Route Blanche. This greenway leads to La Mollière round-about, where you join a minor country road taking you to Cayeux-sur-Mer.
