126 km from Chalon to Digoin

This section, on the EuroVelo 6 cycle route, runs beside the Canal du Centre. It crosses Southern Burgundy, from Chalon to Digoin, from Saône to Loire. The pretty route is dotted with characterful towns, vineyards and hills where cattle graze. As well as the natural and cultural riches, the industrial past is fascinating here. This section is mainly along greenways, with some stretches on roads and some slopes. Ideal to do in 3 to 4 days.
