Thanks in advance.
We expats visit England each year, Covid allowing, and ride our tandem mainly around Sussex, but the road surface, potholes, etc is atrocious. We have crossed from Newhaven by ferry and ridden to Paris via the Avenue Verte and that is a pleasure. Go directly from Newhaven ins my recommendation.
