The route is provisional on this stage of the Canal de Bourgogne à Vélo. It starts north of Auxerre at Vieux Migennes, where a church known as ‘the Railwaymen’s Lourdes’ watches over a major rail junction. The port at Migennes, where the Yonne River is joined by the Canal de Bourgogne, is the starting point into the Burgundian hills.
