Leaving central Le Mans, the V44 cycle route takes you to the banks of the Huisne and lovely greenways leading to the grand Plantagenet Epau Abbey and through L’Arche de la Nature, a protected nature zone on the edge of Le Mans, reflecting the different types of countryside to be found around the Sarthe. The route continues on quiet roads, going past meadows, hedgerows and forests, to Parigné-l’Evêque and Le Grand-Lucé.
