Link Château-Chinon The Grande Traversée du Massif Central by mountain bike
Nature & small heritage
I cycle often
The start of this GTMC à VTT linking stage lies very close to the Musée du Septennat, which displays the gifts received by French President François Mitterrand during his two terms in office (1981-1995). The track shows off the Morvan area and crosses typical light woods and patchworks of fields. Mountain bikers will relish this superb stretch, alternating between woods and traditional farmland.

Leaving the town of Château-Chinon, you first take a small road up hill but soon come to a descent you can tackle at breakneck speed! Then there’s a small rise that proves easy after the elation of the great descent just before. After a few kilometres, you return to civilisation and the main GTMC trail.
