Information taken from: P2P itinerary – The Royal British Legion.

Day 3: Abbeville to Beauvais (106.9km)

Following a rousing send-off from the people of Abbeville, we continue our cycling by heading south through the Somme region.

The Somme is remembered for the terrible battles of the First World War and the beautiful countryside is studded with cemeteries and other poignant reminders of the thousands of men who lost their lives. You will continue through the Oise Region of Picardie and in the afternoon there will be a special reception at the small village of Auchy La Montagne, where each year the villagers give us a wonderful welcome in thanks for their liberation by British Forces in the Second World War.

The day ends with a ceremony at the war memorial in Beauvais followed by a drinks reception at the Fire Station, before coaches take you to your hotels.
