Surface of the stage
The route is signposted all along with signs for EuroVelo 6 and 15.
Near the start of the stage, after the magnificent footbridge (and cycle-bridge) over the Rhine, and for just 350 metres or so, you need to take a road shared with motorized traffic. Then the route is free of motorized traffic to Kembs. It runs beside the Canal du Rhône au Rhin, along the well-surfaced towpath, up to Kembs’s riverboat stop.
