Brie by bike: from Crécy-la-Chapelle to La Ferté-sous-Jouarre

Bike itinerary between Crécy-la-Chapelle and La Ferté-sous-Jouarre.
A section of the 3-day “Brie by bike” loop.

Departing from Crécy-la-Chapelle, you’ll leave the Grand Morin River snaking through the “Valley of Painters” as you pedal towards La Ferté-sous-Jouarre, gateway to the Île-de-France region and “Millstone Capital of the World”. This section of the “Brie by bike” loop will lead you along country lanes and tractor tracks to the heart of the great Brie plain, dotted with hamlets and small market towns – and even a few oil drills!
Loop not suited to children under 12.

SHORT STAY IDEA: Discover the 2 other sections of the “Brie by bike” tourist loop (“From La Ferté-sous-Jouarre to Coulommiers” and “From Coulommiers to Crécy-la-Chapelle”), for a fun and flavourful 2-wheeled weekend getaway.

Leaving Crécy for La Ferté-sous-Jouarre

Exit the Crécy-la-Chapelle railway station and turn right. At the crossroads facing the belfry, follow the promenade bordering the brook on the left. At the end, turn left onto Rue de la Chapelle and climb up to the traffic light. At the intersection with the D934 secondary road, continue directly opposite along Chemin de Saint-Fiacre (zone 30 dead end). Shift down and pedal out of the saddle to tackle the next 300 (very steep) metres! At the top, catch your breath and follow the grassy path going left. Enjoy the hard-earned yet magnificent view of the entire valley! Bike along the meadows, turn right and continue climbing along Chemin des Chanterennes. Turn left at the next stop sign, then take the second right onto Rue Tirechappe. In front of the one-way road, turn left onto Rue de Bias, then right onto Rue Charles Dullin. Continue along the rather wide tractor track that bears left along an orchard. You enter Brie’s vast agricultural plain.

Coulommes

Careful, the lane is poorly maintained as it approaches the village on the left. At the crossroads, continue straight on along the grassy trail through the fields. You can see the Coulommes bell tower on your left; pedal to the belfry at the next intersection (along a low hedge). The trail becomes a tarred road all the way to the small town. Bike to the church and turn right onto the D125. Pedal past the old pumpjack and continue along the D125, turning left upon exiting the village.

Vaucourtois

Cross the D228 secondary road to Vaucourtois. Enter the village and turn left at the church square. Bike along the château wall and hedge via the winding road. Still heading towards Villemareuil, you return to the agricultural plain with the A4 motorway off in the distance. At the string of trees, turn left onto the wide white gravelled lane. Pedal past the (ever functioning) pumpjack. But what could it be pumping here, just outside Paris? At the end of the lane, pass over the A4 motorway and enter the small town.

Prévilliers

At the stud farm, bear left before then taking the first right opposite the hangar. Next, turn right onto Grande Rue. At the end, continue right of the riding school, along the country lane. Pass yet another pumpjack to find yourself in the heart of an oil field! Pass by the crude-oil storage platform, regain the road and pedal between two more functioning pumpjacks.

Villemareuil

In Villemareuil, continue straight on at the yield sign, then turn immediately right onto Rue Saint-Christophe. After leaving the village and the wood, skirt the A4 motorway that you eventually cross via the bridge on your right, in the direction of Dieu l’Amant.

Moras

Turn left immediately after the bridge to pedal along the motorway. The tractor track soon turns into a tarred country lane with grass growing down the middle. Turn right onto the straight secondary road skirting the state forest of Le Mans. At the end of the wood, turn left towards Moras. Careful here and consider first stopping on the side of this fast, risky road before crossing over. Pass by the Moras greenhouses and the municipal forest of Signy-Signets and enjoy a long downhill run to Les Perdriets and the hamlet of Les Vaseliers, continuing all the way to Signy-Signets.

Signy-Signets

At the first stop sign, turn right onto Rue du Néflier. Cross the D21 secondary road and in the small town of Signy, turn left while remaining on the main road. Pass by “Les Quatre Maisons” and bike straight downhill at the intersection. Turn left towards the lovely lake.

To Jouarre

The road crosses through the wood. At the end, turn right onto the D114P. Pass the succession of narrow sections and exit the small town; a kilometre further on, take the first left (below the large green hangars). Careful, as cars drive fast along this road and drivers aren’t expecting a bicyclist to cross over here onto a path. At the end of the path, turn left and bike down into the small town of Sept-Sorts. Turn right at the first stop sign, then ride up and down towards the old trunk road.

La Ferté-sous-Jouarre

Turn right onto the secondary road. Pedal down to the roundabout and turn left towards the town centre. Cross over the Marne River via the Pont de l’Europe bridge and take the first right. Enter the park and follow the towpath to the car park. Come to a boulevard and turn right. Turn left in the zone 30 (low-speed traffic zone) towards the Hôtel de Ville (town hall). Cross the central square and continue climbing. After leaving the zone 30, the main road goes down to the railway station.
