Not knowing France at all I have simply plotted this route on bikeroutetoaster.com. The idea is to cross France at a reasonable pace (IRO 70-100km a day approx) and to go along coastal regions if possible. I tied to stay off the bigger roads as well. So id this a good route? Is it too hilly? Are there better places to go? Clearly I cant do everything, so i thought this was as good a route as any, but I am open to suggestions from all, especially if you've been over there on a touring bike yourself. Bikeroute toaster could not save this route in IE so i took screen shots. I will do the next route in Mozilla firefox which is able to save the route. Many thanks.
