La Châtre

55,98 km cycling route from Châteauroux to La Châtre

The Indre à Vélo cycle route leaves behind Châteauroux’s ramparts to head deep into the state forest of Châteauroux, boasting the largest oak woods in France. The rest of this stage takes riders on a literary and sporting journey. You ride across the flat plains of the Champagne Berrichonne area to the hillier area of Boischaut Sud, through parts evoked by George Sand in her ground-breaking 19th-century novels. She is also connected with La Châtre, a town with a rich heritage that proves full of surprises and is very much worth exploring.
