14,25 km cycling route from Montchanin to Montceau-les-Mines

This EuroVelo 6 stage is punctuated by many sites bearing witness to Southern Burgundy’s rich industrial past. The historic mining town of Montceau-les-Mines is a stop that proves both surprising and enjoyable. There isn’t a greenway set up along this stretch for the time being, but you take a calm small road beside the canal.

At present, there isn’t any greenway between Montchanin and Montceau-les-Mines, but in contrast to the St-Léger-sur-Dheune > Montchanin stage, along this stage, the D 974 road is not busy at all and is really easy for cyclists.
