The Sir John Monash Centre is part of the Accueil Vélo network. The initiative, introduced by Somme Tourisme in the region, guarantees a quality welcome to all cyclists visiting the Sir John Monash Centre and the Australian National Memorial.

Ideally located on the Somme cycle path, don’t hesitate to stop at the Sir John Monash Centre during your bicycle ride along the Somme. The Sir John Monash Centre is a member of the Accueil vélo network and offers the following services to cyclists:

  • Bicycle parking
  • Brochures and advice on cycling in the area
  • A puncture repair kit
  • Accessible café for refreshments


The Somme Valley cycle path is a 200km path with exceptional natural and historical sites along the Somme, from Tergnier to St-Valery-sur-Somme.

Built along the Somme canal, on the old towpath, the cycle route will allow you to discover exceptional natural sites such as the Barette ponds or the Cavins marsh. It also crosses the former battlefields of the First World War and will take you to the Australian National Memorial and the Sir John Monash Centre as well as other sites on the Australian Memorial Trail along the Western Front.

There are a number of stages along the way, allowing you to tailor the tour to your own requirements, and you can cycle for half a day, a day, or several days. Everything has been designed for the comfort of cycling travellers: picnic areas, cycle parking, train-stations, and accommodation for shorter or longer rides.
