Péronne
Corbie
At the town of Péronne, in such a significant location during the Battle of the Somme, the Historial is a major museum focusing on World War I. Set in Péronne’s converted castle, this should not be missed to understand, in particular, this massive event for British and Commonwealth soldiers confronting the German Army in summer 1916. The traces of the so-called Great War are still very visible in these parts. After reflecting on this history, ride on to enjoy the wilder natural parts along this cycling stage. Midway, at Froissy, the café La Halte Gourmande, set in a lock-keeper’s cottage, is a good place to enjoy refreshments. Water and greenery are the main themes on this stage. Do head for the higher ground, either by bike or on foot, to make the most of the belvederes at Frise, Vaux, Chipilly and Corbie, offering remarkable views over the valley.

Cycle Route

At the level of the marina on the south bank, follow the towpath and signage for the Véloroute Vallée de Somme again. Shortly after Péronne, cycle along the towpath beside the canalized Somme. At Eclusier-Vaux, take the signs leading to Cappy via Suzanne, then rejoin the towpath at Cappy. At Méricourt-sur-Somme, choose between two options: head right towards Chipilly and the Belvédère du Camp César, tackling some slopes; or head left for the centre of Méricourt-sur-Somme, then Morcourt. Finally, continue cycling along the towpath on the south bank from Cerisy up to Sailly-Laurette, then switch to the north bank up to Corbie.
