With its grand royal palace, Ride 40 Anniversary starts from the historic town of Fontainebleau, some 30 miles south of Paris. From here you ride north-west through the small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France on a mix of quiet roads and traffic-free lanes until you reach Dieppe.
