    Although the distance of stage six may seem considerable, the number of kilometers to be cycled is not that bad. After a drive of 40 kilometers you arrive in Calais. Here you catch the ferry to Dover, England.The cycle path takes you to the west side of Dunkirk. Just outside the center is a beautiful public garden with beautiful plants and flowers. In Grevelines the route follows the contours of this old fortified city.At the village of Oye-Plage you cycle a little closer to the coast. In some places you can also see the wide sandy beach. As you pass Notre-Dame de-l'Immaculée-Conception, the port of Calais comes into view.It is advisable to book your ticket some time in advance. That way you usually have the best deal. A boat leaves every two hours and the crossing takes about 90 minutes. Your bicycle will be placed on the car deck, so make sure you have a lock with you to secure the bicycle.On board you will find all kinds of facilities, such as shops, restaurants, play areas and bars. This way you don't have to get bored during the trip. After an hour of sailing, the imposing chalk cliffs of Dover loom on the horizon.Once set foot on mainland England, you can check-in directly at the hotel. Another option is to visit the "White Cliffs of Dover". Where you previously saw the white cliffs from the ferry, you can climb to a viewpoint here. You might see the ferry sailing back to Calais.
