In the coronary heart of the regional normal park, an ancient Roman street gives many routes dotted with heritage and cultural stops in between Pontoise and Magny-en-Vexin. A brief manual to cycling freely in the Oise Valley.
Throughout the vacations, why not put your bicycle wheels on the Jules-César street, which, two thousand yrs ago, joined Lutèce to La Manche? Abandoned in medieval instances, the street fell into oblivion in the 18th century. Till the intervention of the French Vexin Regional Purely natural Park, which set up 7 walks (routes to download listed here) forming component of the aged Roman road, in between Pontoise and Magny-en-Vexin. If the route inherited the identify of Julius Caesar, it is a confusion dating back again to the Middle Ages, mainly because it was unquestionably traced for the duration of the reign of his adopted son, Augustus, or his successor, Tiberius. I join her right after about 10 kilometers from Chars station.
Along the slopes, the route appears like a path in the woods, on a a bit rounded keep track of and, in the center of the basic, to a path traced by a line. The fantastic terrain to examination a cyclocross-derived gravel racing bike, but any bike with significant tires will do. Arrived not far from the town of Perchay, I consider a crack at the crossroads of Chaussée Brunehaut, one more Roman highway, which went from Beauvais to Orleans.
