Digoin
Gilly-sur-Loire
On your bicycle, you pedal along the regional border between Burgundy and Auvergne. In fact, there’s a detour you can enjoy on a new greenway beside the Canal Latéral à la Loire in the Auvergne county of Allier. The official route sticks to quiet roads through Burgundy’s Charolais hills. The suggested detour is easy and accessible to all.
