RONDE PICARDE CYCLOSPORTIVE TRIP
DATE OF TRIP: 11-13/09/15
Abbeville is a great base for exploring the Picardie coastline abound with bird sanctuaries, dunes, forests and marshlands. Fishing ports such as Le Crotoy are also close at hand and offer numerous opportunities for sailing, kayaking, kite-surfing or simply beach fun. Obviously we won't have time for these things as cycling will be on our minds but the town is an interesting one and although being badly bombed during the second world war architectural delights still exist in Abbeville including the Eglise Saint-Sepulcre which dates back to the 15th century and the Collegiale Saint-Vulfran - a 13th century belfry and perhaps the oldest in France.
