You have now reached the town of Vaucouleurs, a town associated with Joan of Arc. Vaucouleurs was founded in Gallo-Roman times, when it was known as Vallis Colorum (latin for the "Valley of Colours"). Heading on to Commercy, the home of the madeleine (sponge finger cake), take the time to stroll through the picturesque streets winding their way along the Meuse before a short uphill section between St-Germain-sur Meuse and Void-Vacon. Commercy is also known for its Castle Stanislas, listed as a historical monument.
After setting off from Vaucouleurs, travel towards Ugny-sur-Meuse along CD 36. At St-Germain-sur-Meuse turn left onto a country road. After a few kilometres, at the Ourches crossroads, head left onto CD 144. There's a small hill, a journey through the forest. And then it's downhill towards Void-Vacon. After several kilometres along country roads, be extremely vigilant between Euville and Commercy: a long, straight section.
