  • The Pays de Bray

    The Pays de Bray [100.5 km]

    This wonderful stretch of the Avenue Verte transports you from the Pays de Dieppe across the Pays de Bray, a deeply typical area of Normandy, with rich farmlands stetching across wide green rolling hills. Our track takes you as far as the old thermal town of Forges-les-Eaux. Then you need to follow a provisional route along small country roads leading to Saint-Germer-de-Fly, a pretty village just within the region of Picardy. There, you can choose between two different Avenue Verte routes taking you to central Paris.

  • The Oise, a Land of Great Builders

    The Oise, a Land of Great Builders [91.1 km]

    Asnières-sur-Oise > Senlis > Pont-Ste-Maxence > Clermont > Bresles > Beauvais
    • Intermediate from Asnières-sur-Oise to Senlis and from Senlis to Pont-Ste-Maxence and from Pont-Ste-Maxence to Clermont and from Clermont to Bresles and from Bresles to Beauvais

    As an alternative to heading down to the Ile-de-France region via the Vexin and the Epte Valley, a fascinating, alternative Avenue Verte route takes you along the Trans'Oise way, crossing the OIse département (or county), which stretches across southern Picardy, on the border with the Ile-de-France. The Oise département was a cradle of Gothic architecture and boasts an exceptional heritage. You'll see this immediately at the start of this section, with the massive abbey at Saint-Germer-de-Fly. Further stars along this route include the Château de Chantilly, the abbeys of Le Moncel and Royaumont, the royal town of Senlis and the cathedral of Beauvais. On top of that, the cycle route through the Oise proves a delight.

  • The Vexin Area and the Epte Valley

    The Vexin Area and the Epte Valley [114.2 km]

    Conflans-Ste-Honorine > Vigny > Villarceaux > Bray-et-Lu > Gisors > St-Germer-de-Fly > Vernon

    This section of the Avenue Verte takes you through historic frontier territories. You start by following the Normandy-Picardy border, passing via the important frontier town of Gisors. You then enter the former border territory between Normandy and the Ile-de-France (the region surrounding Paris), as you cross through the unspoilt areas of the Vexin Normand and Vexin Français. You'll pass by many beautiful old villages, forts and manors along the way. As an extra treat, make a short but memorable detour down the Epte Valley to Giverny near the Seine, where you can visit Monet's famed Impressionist gardens.
