Cycle paths in Burgundy

Burgundy has a very well-developed network of cycle paths. These are asphalted, with the majority of the paths well maintained and excellent to ride on. The traffic-free routes not only offer countless rest areas with tables, but also lead through the region's most scenic locations. Moreover, due to the connection to the cycle paths of neighbouring regions, very extensive cycling trips are also possible.
