This EuroVelo 6 stage through archetypal Loire landscapes starts at Decize’s modern Port de la Jonction between the Loire and the Canal Latéral à la Loire. The gentle Nivernais countryside is scattered with typical old villages prettified by Romanesque churches. Cyclists choose between country roads or a fairly rough towpath that will be transformed.

Route

The Canal Latéral à la Loire towpath is being turned into a greenway between Decize and Nevers. If you have a tough hybrid bike, it is possible even now to follow the unsurfaced towpath, running unbroken from Decize to Nevers.
