32,15 km cycling route from Marthon to Angoulême

La Flow Vélo now heads for Angoulême, French capital of comics and drawing. Following Le Bandiat’s valley, the Coulée d’Oc greenway provides a tranquil route through the countryside and little villages embellished with beautiful Romanesque churches. At Chazelles, the Grottes du Quéroy provide a refreshing stop, with their underground maze of caves. The cycle route then meanders towards Angoulême, going along the Touvre – it’s worth exploring this river’s surprising sources.

The route

La Flow Vélo continues along La Coulée d'Oc greenway, its surface tarmacked up to Angoulême. Then you alternate between stretches on greenways and on little-used streets, taking you to the Charente River and its banks, laid out as a ‘coulée verte’, or green corridor.
