Itinerary

You leave Illiers-Combray via a very short cycle track carrying you over a stream.  Then you follow a small road until the intersection with the D 922 road, where you need to pay attention to the traffic. Cycle with caution on the slightly tricky section up to Méréglise. Then you join quiet country roads, crossing two pleasant woods.
