đŸšČ Stage description and details:

The cycling is pretty smooth along most of the greenway from RĂ©malard to Mortagne-au-Perche. Shortly before Mortagne-au-Perche, the final section of the greenway is being redesigned at time of writing and is temporarily closed. Follow the diversion in place, taking you along small roads. Arriving at Mortagne-au-Perche, a steep link lasting a bit over 1km leads you to the centre of town. 

⭐ Don’t miss:

  • The Manoir de Courboyer, 7km from the greenway via Boissy-Maugis, is home to the Maison du Parc Naturel RĂ©gional du Perche, where you can learn a great deal about this magnificent area. 
  • The Basilique Notre-Dame de La Chapelle-Montligeon, nicknamed "the cathedral in the fields", impresses by its size. Located a few kilometres beyond our cycle route, to reach it, follow the signposted circuit, "Dites-le avec des fleurs". 
  • AOP (or PDO) cidre du Perche marks itself out from its neighbouring Norman and Breton ciders by its distinctive flavour. Stop for some at the Ferme de la Maison FerrĂ©, located along the route, or then purchase local juices and ciders in the delicatessens in Mortagne-au-Perche.
  • The Manoir de la VĂŽve isn’t open to the public, but can be admired by riding a few hundred metres along the D256 road a bit before Corbon.
  • Mortagne-au-Perche is a fine little town designated a Petite CitĂ© de CaractĂšreÂź thanks to its remarkable historical, cultural and natural heritage. 

🍮 Food and drink en route:

  • RĂ©malard-en-Perche
    • Food and drink stores and a market on Monday mornings on Place de Gaulle.
    • The restaurant En gare, set immediately beside the greenway, offers local, good-value food. It’s ideal for a lunch stop. 
  • Courgeon: the CafĂ© de la place, a typical little French country cafĂ©, promises cyclists a warm welcome.  
  • Mortagne-au-Perche: numerous food and drink stores and a market on Saturday mornings on Place Notre-Dame
