The Meuse cycle route

French rivers, Nature & small heritage
443 Km
Langres
Givet
European cycle route, La Meuse à Vélo (Meuse by bike) crosses the French county (or département) of Ardennes using the greenway called the Trans-Ardennes. Running along the towpath beside the Meuse River from Remilly-Aillicourt to Givet, this cycle route was voted Véloroute de l'année (Cycle Route of the Year) in 2011. The rugged landscapes here have inspired countless legends. Remarkable architecture also marks the way, such as the vast Château-Fort of Sedan and the grand facades of Place Ducale square in the town of Charleville-Mézières.
