There are millions more bad drivers than cyclists, and the drivers are the ones with the lethal weapons! Drivers are very hostile, and bully us on a day-to-day basis. We need patience and courtesy on the roads.

Just choose a EuroVelo route, and you'll have a brilliant time...

OR, do what I did years ago, and just cycle via compass --- then you'll discover the truly awful French drivers

The French have built a brilliant cycle network...but you do have to do some planning ahead of time. The London to Paris route is highly recommended, as is the North Sea route (the roads are perfect...no potholes. & you get to see the myriad of WW2 history in the form of Hitler's Atlantic defences).

If you have more time on your hands, do the Danube cycle route. Such an easy route, and takes in some of the most beautiful views in Europe (and some of the best cities!)

"Dunkirk and Calais are only 23 miles apart. Dunkirk is in France and is only a 35 minute drive from Calais. You could save money or have more flexibility on travel times if you choose either port. "

Calais is actually OK to spend a few hours in, with a fair few small parks, bars, restaurants and shops. Not really walkable from the ferry port, but there is plenty of free/cheap parking in or close to the town centre.

Sorry for the newb question.

Its true, DFDS aint a patch on what it used to be as Norfolkline.
