Between Basel-Mulhouse on France’s eastern border and Nevers on the Loire, follow one of the country’s most interesting unbroken cycle routes, part of the EuroVelo 6 route linking the Black Sea to the Atlantic. Cyclists love crossing Southern Alsace via the peaceful Canal du Rhône au Rhin. An unforgettable section takes you along the Doubs Valley and through the Jura Region’s hills. Lastly, you cross Southern Burgundy, passing by famous vineyards, medieval villages and historic industrial sites beside the Canal du Centre. Make the most of the many railway services allowing you to carry bikes to different sections of the route.
