In August I am cycling from Manchester to London and then I am getting the Eurostar from London to Paris. There I am staying with a friend who lives in the city (literally a 15 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower) and then we have 8 days to see as much as we can. We will be cycling (on road bikes) and I'd love to see as much as France as possible, staying in a tent during the evening. Are there any routes, or destinations you would recommend. We are both fit and want to push ourselves.
our budget will be 400 euros each excluding accomadation as we will be staying in the tent.
