The town of Mayenne, located on the Vélo Francette cycle route, also enables you to reach another cycle route, the Véloscénie, via a greenway heading northeast out of town to Javron-les-Chapelles. This 33km greenway with its good compact surface leads you along a straight trajectory through pretty, hilly countryside.

The route

Leaving Mayenne via the east bank of the River Mayenne, head in the direction of Ambrières-les-Vallées for the junction of greenways, following signs for La Vélo Francette. The two greenways then go their separate ways 200m after the cemetery. Take the right-hand route.

Take care as you cross the D 113 road northeast of Aron.

There are kilometre markers along the greenway.

Picnic tables are set out along the route.
