Waytypes of the stage
Exclusively on minor roads, with a steep slope taking you from Guise up to the plateau above. The main street in Origny-sur-Oise can be very busy with traffic. Signposted EV3.
Surfacing smooth: compacted tracks or asphalt.
The Scandibérique connects with the Véloroute Stevenson®, which follows the way taken by the adventurous Scottish author in 1876.
