At the stop sign after the port of Samois, turn left onto the footbridge to reach the Île de Samois. It is here on this island that an international jazz festival is held each June, in honour of the renowned Django Reinhardt. Leaving the island, wave goodbye to Django’s statue and turn left back onto the tarred road, to continue on to Fontainebleau along the Seine for 2.5 km. At the end of the road, before the bridge over the Seine, you encounter heavy traffic: to avoid all these cars, bear left to pass under the Pont de Valvins bridge via a one-way road (next to the exit sign for the village of Samois). Be careful pedalling the wrong way down this narrow road and keep right! At the stop sign, bike along the left-hand pavement to take the first left onto Rue du Port de Valvins. You’re now only a few metres from the Avon-Seine greenway: the narrow path snaking its way upwards on the right at the end of the street to join a forest trail.
