12,12 km cycling route from Paray-le-Monial to Digoin

You will ride your bicycle on an idyllic route from Paray-le-Monial to Digoin. A greenway meanders through utterly peaceful countryside, beside the Canal du Centre, used by pleasure craft. At Digoin, an ingenious canal-bridge crosses the Loire to join the Canal Latéral à la Loire running beside the mighty river. A very easy stage.
