Épernon / Maintenon Veloscenic : Paris to Mont-Saint-Michel cycle route
Leaving Epernon from the station, you follow a series of quiet little roads taking you along the Drouette Valley. The route then joins the Eure Valley at Villiers-le-Morhier to head on to Maintenon.
In the centre of Epernon, in the direction Le Mont-Saint-Michel - Paris, the street called "Rue Drouet" and its intersection with "Rue du Quillier" is closed to traffic due to a risk of building collapse. However, it is possible to go beyond the danger zone (about twenty metres) on foot by using the pedestrian corridor set up for this purpose. As the beginning of Rue du Quillier is inaccessible, continue on rue Drouet to the first stop sign. Then turn right and go down Rue de la Regratterie to reach the route Rue du Grand Pont. In the direction Paris - Le Mont-Saint-Michel, the itinerary is unchanged.
Change of direction to access the camping Les îlots de St-Val in Villiers le Morhier. Due to repair work on a bridge, the usual access to the campground is closed. An alternative route for cyclists is summarily signposted from Villiers le Morhier. Download the map.
