    From Calais to Bray-Dunes, you only have sixty-four left
    kilometers to cover to reach the end of the French route of Eurovélo 4.
    A day of dune exploration awaits you with the Platier d'Oye National Nature Reserve, Fort-de-Dunes and Bray-Dunes.This fort and this village are linked to Operation Dynamo. Code name referring to the evacuation of British troops at the start of the war in May 1940. The film Dunkirk released in 2017 recounts these tragic events. You will of course pass through the city of Dunkirk halfway through.An Alain Souchon song refers to Bray-Dunes. It is called "the kiss". Do not forget to hum it to conclude this beautiful journey, it will give you nostalgia and hope.
