Camping is always the cheapest option and sites are plentiful. Almost every town in France has a municipal site, often for just a few euros per night and in tourist areas there are usually loads to choose from. Also you will be welcomed when you turn up by bike. Not like in some parts of this country angry

As for routes and places to go, that will depend on how much time you got

If you're not much for camping (or can't fit a tent into your luggage) there are always hotels available wherever you go in France (never been to Belgium on the bike). I've found many a hotel owner who will actually give you his garage to store you bike. Very accommodating those Frenchies.

If you go via Dover I know a Guest House that will charge you a couple of extra squids to put your bike in a locked garage overnight.

As for a route, in years gone by most UK biking mags have produced Europe ride guides - I do recall one for Northern France which I may have somewhere. Keep your eyes peeled and they plot a route for you!

Sure thing - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I warn you though, the rooms are somewhat....frilly! All nice and clean but not too, ahem, macho!

i have to say, being a girly that's not given to frills, that those bedrooms look a little..... sinister in a frilly, stepford wives kind of a way lol. Garage looks ok tho.

Has anyone been to that place i think it's wales way on - specially for bikers? apparently it's all geared for bikers down to the thingys in the floor to lock your bike to. wish i could remember the darn name of the place!!!
