Greenway from Verdun-sur-le-Doubs to Bragny. Take care on the complicated stretch around Gergy (following a disused railway line, then the banks of the Saône). Then there’s a provisional linking route along relatively busy roads to Chalon (D 5 road). Arriving at Chalon, take Avenue Kennedy, with its marked-out cycle lane, for the historic centre.
