From Monsempron-Libos, you join a greenway set up in part along a disused railway line running alongside the river, although the surface is rather rough in parts.
Signposting is not consistent in the county of the Lot-et-Garonne, so keep your eyes peeled, particularly crossing villages and towns. There are few hills on this stage, which is suitable for seasoned cyclists. There are slopes to negotiate in the area of Clauzade.
