Waytypes of the stage
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.
