After crossing the Bouvignes lock and travelling a few hundred meters along the N948 following the signs (with a green background), take a side road to the right towards Thynes, Sovet and Ciney.

After Ciney, most roads are quiet and not very busy, but without signposts. You will cross the villages of Leignon, Chapois, Haversin, Havrenne and Humain before arriving in the Pays de Famenne and its waymarked cycle network, which starts shortly before Humain, at waymark 34 (chemin Saint-Rémy). From here, signposts will guide you to Marche-en-Famenne.

The entry into Marche-en-Famenne is entirely on a clean green track integrated into the urban boulevard.
