Leaving from the former train station at Thury-Harcourt, you first follow the Orne River via a small, quiet road taking you up to Clécy. Next, tackle some hilly stretches by road, allowing you to admire the Suisse Normande area from on high. You eventually reach the pretty village of Pont-d'Ouilly.
