This EuroVelo 6 stage in Burgundy starts at Chalon, then takes you along the Canal du Centre, leading towards the Loire River. This stage is particularly peaceful and enjoyable, taking you along a canal appreciated by anglers and pleasure craft. The cycle route is easy, being almost entirely on greenways, except for leaving Chalon.
