You start this stage on the Quai du Condroz in Angleur, on the left bank of the Ourthe. You head towards the Rue du Biez on a short connection towards RAVeL Ourthe Canal. The latter brings you close to the Meuse that you cross on a footbridge adjoining to the Railway Bridge. It is located just before the cable-stayed bridge on the Meuse.
The signposting invites you to continue towards Seraing and Huy on small local roads. Somewhat distant from the left bank of the Meuse, these public roads wind through the areas of Val Benoît, Sclessin and Tilleur.
Shortly before Jemeppe, you cross the Seraing Bridge to reach the right bank of the Meuse. After crossing the city on well-marked local roads, you will find the RAVeL on dedicated cycle paths for a few kilometres until the Ivoz-Ramet lock dam bridge. At this point, you leave the RAVeL Meuse to take a connection link of about 12km on regional and local roads that will take you through Ivoz-Ramet, Ramioul, Hermalle-sous-Huy and Ombret.
At Ombret, you return to the edge of the Meuse (right bank). You follow the site of Tihange nuclear power station and you reach the centre of Huy via a well-signposted connection link on local roads.
Surfacing: mostly smooth. Alternating between asphalt and concrete.
Incline: no slope.
Signposting: Follow signposts to "La Meuse à vélo", very useful, especially to locate the connection on local roads between the exit Liège and Seraing, the Seraing crossing, the section between Ivoz-Ramet and Ombret and the Huy crossing.
Safety, precautions: Between the exit Liège and Ombret, the route is mainly on local roads with low to moderate traffic and speed, without any cycling paths (± 20km on shared roads).
