Gilly-sur-Loire / Bourbon-Lancy EuroVelo 6 - Cycle Route of the rivers
Canals & intimate rivers, Nature & small heritage
I begin / Family
You feel the irresistible pull of the Loire on this EuroVelo 6 Burgundian stage. From Gilly-sur-Loire to the charming little thermal spa town of Bourbon-Lancy, a pretty cycle track goes along a disused railway line. A highlight is the Château de Saint-Aubin-sur-Loire, its formal French gardens descending to the river. This stage is easy and enjoyable.
