This first stage of EuroVelo 19 - Meuse Cycle Route begins at the source of the river on the Langres plateau in the village of Pouilly-en-Bassigny in Haute-Marne. From there it’s a short journey to the Department of the Vosges where Neufchâteau will welcome you with its rich architectural heritage. You then ride into Joan of Arc territory, from her birth house in Domremy-la-Pucelle to Vaucouleurs, the place from which she departed to meet her destiny. The last part of this stage is steeped in history, with numerous fortifications along the route: Troyon, Génicourt and La Falouse. And why not take a day off to explore the Verdun Battlefield?
