Take care on the D 18 road south of Maintenon. Then the route meanders along the Eure Valley, taking you past typical old villages. To cross Chartres, leave the ordinary road to follow a greenway from Champhol towards the south side of town. Pay attention, as there's no signposting as yet on the greenway, which makes the route somewhat more complicated along here, notably south of the cathedral.
