Nevers
Cuffy
Near the majestic Bec d’Allier (where the Allier River joins the Loire), Le Guétin’s canal-bridge makes quite an impression on this EuroVelo 6 stage leading on via Cuffy to the Loire à Vélo cycle route. The Canal Latéral à la Loire then acts as a link between Burgundy and the Loire Valley. This charming stage, starting at the unique city of Nevers, with its many services and shops, is almost entirely on greenways.

Route

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.
