Ermenonville/Ver-sur-Launette / Bondy
Take in two distinct atmospheres on this Scandibérique stage. Between Ermenonville and Gressy, you ride through vast cereal and sugar beet fields. From Gressy, you follow the towpath track beside the Canal de l’Ourcq, providing a narrow, distinctive setting, quite separate from the string of suburban towns of Tremblay, Villepinte and Sevran along the way. The route leads past La Poudrerie Forest Park, a green haven of 137 hectares, classed as a Natura 2000 area. After Sevran-Livry Forest Park, the route carries on towards Aulnay-sous-Bois, Bondy and Villemomble; along this stretch, the cycle path runs beside the broader section of the Canal de l’Ourcq, surrounded by urban parts.

The route

On minor roads between Ver-sur-Launette and Gressy, after which the Canal de l’Ourcq serves as your thread through the département, or county, of Seine-Saint-Denis just northeast of the French capital. The route crosses the suburban towns of Tremblay-en-France, Villepinte, Sevran, Aulnay-sous-Bois, Bondy and Villemomble. Specific EV3 signposting is in place up to Ver-sur-Launette. 
Surfacing in parts smooth, in parts rough: compacted tracks and asphalt. A few stretches along rough farm tracks.
