Leave Nevers west along the Loire, following the EuroVelo 6 route to link up with the Loire à Vélo route. After crossing the Loire, take a left along Rue de la Jonction (with its campsite) and join the branch canal. Cross Le Guétin’s canal-bridge on foot, enjoying the views. Just before Cuffy (at La Chaume) the route joins the Canal Latéral à la Loire, running beside it to L’Aubray.
