This EuroVelo 3 stage starts not far from Thuin train station and, going along the Sambre’s north bank, forms part of the RAVeL (Réseau Autonome de Voies Lentes) slow network. No particular difficulties to signal for cyclists along here, as you follow the greenway alongside the Canal de la Sambre.
Surfacing smooth: concrete and asphalt.
