Waytypes of the stage
Surface of the stage
You leave Chartres following the Eure Valley west. You rejoin the Beauce Plateau, where a network of cycle tracks leads to Fontenay-sur-Eure. Then you continue on quiet roads through cereal-farming country down to Illiers-Combray. Note that there are few facilities for cyclists along this stage of the route.
Take care when using the bicycle path between Lucé and Fontenay-sur-Eure. Some bumps have been reported (May 2020).
