San­gatte to Le Tou­quet

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature - Ali­son Sil­cox, Of­fice Man­ager

4 Just over the chan­nel, at the Calais end of the Tun­nel, lies the D940, which hugs the coast from San­gatte to Le Tou­quet. It’s an un­du­lat­ing road that com­bines tight twisty bends with long sweep­ing sec­tions across big open coun­try­side. Be­fore reach­ing Le Tou­quet it passes the vast mil­i­tary ceme­tery at Eta­ples. At times there are un­re­stricted views out to sea, and on a clear day you can glimpse Dover’s White Cliffs and imagine, just be­yond them, the Bank Hol­i­day traf­fic pil­ing up on the M20.

Sweep through the de­serted French coun­try­side
