La Châtre

57,24 km cycling route from La Châtre to Boussac

Your cycling journey along the Indre à Vélo cycle route continues through hillier terrain and traditional hedge-divided fields. This stage brings you closer to the foothills of the Massif Central, leading you to the source of the Indre River at Saint-Priest-la-Marche. Crossing into the département (or county) of Creuse, the Tour de Creuse à Vélo cycle route now becomes the guiding thread up to the next stopover town. All around, nature and greenery dominate. Following in the footsteps of novelist George Sand, enjoy a halt in Boussac with its perched château, in a place where she loved to stay.
