The Pays de Bray is a paradise for those who enjoy walking, cycling or horse riding.

Cycling and L'Avenue Verte

As well as hundreds of kilometres of marked circular paths through beautiful countryside and beech forests, there is the Avenue Verte or Green Way, a former railway line which runs from Dieppe to Forges-les-Eaux, a distance of 45 kms.

The route has been resurfaced and the edges planted. Picnic tables, sculptures and information boards are located along its length. It is ideal for walkers, cyclists and those who enjoy roller blading; it is particularly good for children.

Bicycles for all sizes can be hired in Neufchatel, or from a camp site situated beside the Green Way.
