Re: Dieppe

I would'nt disagree with the above suggestion but I believe the route from Dieppe to Rouen is better

65 kl Dieppe To Rouen then catch train back to Dieppe

Rouen is a beautiful medieval city

Use http://cycle.travel/ to plan the route and it goes through some stunning countryside

Re: Reading to Paris

Hi As I understand it you've ridden your bike with the 'longest route being 17 miles' Without being judgemental to jump from that to 60 miles per day is a significant jump.
