21,92 km cycling route from Rogny-les-Sept-Écluses to Briare

From Rogny-les-7-Écluses, the Scandibérique continues to follow the course of the Briare Canal, first taking you beside the Étang-Neuf supply channel running parallel to Rogny’s flight of seven locks. While waiting for the definitive route, a provisional route guides you between Rogny-les-Sept-Écluses and the place called "Le Petit Chaloy". Engineering constructions put in place for the benefit of the canal’s boatmen are dotted along this stretch, which proves a delight for nature lovers too. Briare is renowned for its historic bridge-canal and its boating tourism, plus it’s the place where the Scandibérique joins the Loire à Vélo route, in a picture-postcard setting!
