The French part of EuroVelo 3, called "La Scandibérique", with its 1.700 km of routes, represents the longest cycling route in France. Starting at the Belgian border, the itinerary follows the Sambre and Oise valleys and then the Route Stevenson along the canal, passing through Île-de-France, the Loire valley and Poitou, to reach Gascogne, with its pine forests and vineyards. The route finishes in the Pyrenees at Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, the confluence of the St. Jacques de Compostella paths.

The Scandibérique crosses France diagonally to offer you its most iconic landmarks: its terroirs and capital city. In France, the Scandibérique therefore invites you to discover its showcase and back kitchen. It is a trip through the heart of France, offering a discovery of the peacefulness of its valleys and glowing cities, tasting its best wines and succumb to the most beautiful jewels of its cultural and historical heritage.
