Amiens en Vélo

One of our members, Tony Read, recently visited Amiens. This is his cycle orientated account.

Amiens in a large city in northern France.  It’s the capital of Picardy and just south of all the Somme battlefields that were so bitterly contested a hundred years ago.  Population wise it’s somewhat smaller than Leeds and not so spread out; however like Leeds it has quite a large city centre.  In spent a few days there in early December.  I had a bike with me and it was interesting to compare cycling there and in Leeds.
