37,15 km cycling route from Boussac to Chambon-sur-Voueize

This last stage of the Indre à Vélo cycle route leads you to Toulx-Ste-Croix and Chambon-sur-Voueize. The trail is characterized by a gentle, gradual climb, with unusual places to stop at along the way. Reaching Mont Barlot, don’t miss the Pierres Jaumâtres, the granite blocks piled on top of each other here creating an extraordinary natural site. At Toulx-Sainte-Croix, a panoramic tower offers 360° views of the countryside. Down in the village, enter the startling church, split in two; one part contains the vestiges of St Martial Chapel, one of the oldest monuments in the département (county) of Creuse. Before Chambon-sur-Voueize, cross the well-flowered village of Lépaud. Chambon-sur-Voueize, with its abbey church dedicated to St Valery, welcomes riders at the end of the Indre à Vélo cycle route.
