Surface of the cycle route
We present here the last stage of the Cycle Route which arrives in Burgundy and marks the confluence of the canal and the Saône.
Signposting and the state of the route
The Véloroute du Canal entre Champagne & Bourgogne has been 92% laid out at time of writing. The signposting has been put up along all this way, in both directions, with its own dedicated signage. The surface is rough on certain stretches between Percey-le-Grand and Pouilly-sur-Vingeanne.
This cycle route is mainly along towpaths, although there are short stretches where you have to cycle along roads shared with motorized traffic.
Accueil Vélo services and accommodation on the Cycle route along the Canal entre Champagne & Bourgogne
Accueil Vélo accommodation (camp sites, hotels, gîtes, or holiday rentals, and chambres d'hôtes, or B&Bs) is located within 5km of the route and guarantees quality, specially-geared services, such as a lock-up garage to keep your bike safe.
Trains and transporting your bike along the Canal entre Bourgogne & Champagne
Burgundy TER regional services reach the SNCF station at Is-sur-Tille, 25km west of Beaumont-sur-Vingeanne. If arriving from the south, the stations in the towns of Dijon and Auxonne prove useful. Coming from Paris, take the train to Langres Station, from where you can head straight south towards Burgundy.
