You'll be setting off from Langres, Europe's largest fortified city with its 8 km of walls. After leaving the hometown of philosopher Diderot, you'll be cycling along the "Entre Champagne et Bourgogne" canal. You then arrive at Lac de La Liez, before continuing your journey towards Andilly-en-Bassigny and its Gallo-Roman archaeological site, along the peaceful but hilly roads of the Haut-Marne. Be sure to sample Langres cheese in Saulxures!
