Surface of the stage
From Ham town centre, head for the Somme River. At time of writing, the towpath here has not yet been laid out for cyclists. So, for the time being, the start of this stage leads you along quiet roads to Esmery-Halon, Hombleux and Buverchy. Leaving Buverchy, you need to cross the waterway, then go down to the Canal du Nord towpath, heading north for a time, passing under the bridge again. A bit after Rouy-le-Grand and up to Péronne, you follow this major canal route (Canal du Nord and Canal de la Somme), the barges transporting all manner of materials.
At Buverchy, it’s possible to link with La Scandibérique - EuroVelo 3 cycle route through the département (French county) of Oise, following signposting for Frétoy-le-Château.
