ok it's not the best route here by a long way but it's so much better than the tedious autoroute and a great start to France. Abbeville town centre is very slow if you go straight through the middle. some lovely twisties and some great very fast straights too.
If you're heading south star...
A set of hairpins at either end of this route with a few interesting sections in between and where your view is limited by dips in the road theres marker poles alongside the road to show you where it goes
Fast, sweeping and deserted with good visibilty making it easy to hold speed. Visibility maintained by some elevation and about three terrific consecutive switchback corners guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
wonderful alternative to the autoroute or N roads, excellent surfaces fast, flowing turns many quite safe to overtake around the outside due to excellent visibility.
La Ferte Vidame is well worth stopping at for a break.
Take the first exit after the Peage on the A16 motorway and follow the N1 to Amiens not nearly as fast as the motorway but more fun with a few more cafes etc try Le Jerobanne at Ailly le Haut Clocher a French biker cafe
