    21 km mountain bike ride through the Ardennes forest, in the Vallées des Eaux Vives. Let yourself be seduced by the charm of the villages of Nismes and Oignies.

    Olloy-sur-Viroin is still bathed in morning mist as we leave silently towards the forest of Nismes. The stony path crosses the luminous oak forest: the leaves letting through rays of light. The itinerary leads to a lost road. Its bends lead us to Regniessart, one of the most beautiful hamlets in the country, at the edge of the forest.

    In Oignies we find another landscape and country: Thiérarchie and France. The return journey towards the Viroin valley is along the forest RAVeL, at great speed. We arrive in time to make the most of the magnificent main square in Oignies and enjoy some refreshments after this lovely ride.


    In practice


    Route surface
    Paths for the first part. Roads and asphalted RAVeL for the second.

    Bicycle type
    Trekking bike or mountain bike.

    Difficulty

    21 km ride in the forest. The slope leaving Olloy-su-Viroin is steep. After that the route is simpler. The forest path is very pleasant and clear of traffic.

    Children
    Around 12 years old.

    Start
    From the centre of Olly-sur-Viroin, cross the level-crossing and turn immediately right onto rue de la Champagne: steep slope! Pass the campsite: you will enter a forest via a large path.

    Signposting
    Follow the mountain bike (VTT) signs for the start of the trail to the forest road. After Regniessart, the return journey uses the RAVeL.

    Parking

    Place de l'Eglise and rue Saint-Eloi.


    Difficulty: Medium
    Length of the trail: 21 km.
