Stage 8: Dreux – Amiens. 181km.

We’re already a long way from Brittany, and this stage takes us further across the immensity of Northern France, as we follow the Seine for a few miles, before striking out towards the historic battlefields of the First World War, through picturesque villages, small towns and rural french views a’plenty. There are no significant climbs on this stage, though we may have to do battle with the wind as we head into the final stretches.
