Burgundy

Romance & Wine.

Famous wines of Côte d’Or and one of the most varied and finest cuisines of France are the first things you think of when hearing “Burgundy”. Additionally a tour of Burgundy lives from the ideal combination of stunning countryside and splendid treasures of art. Everywhere on the tour you recognize the wealthy past of Burgundy, e.g. the Abbey of Cluny, founded 1000 years ago, or historic Beaune or many little villages scattered in the region. Burgundy is variety … and does not live from wine alone!

Itinerary

Welcome by the tour guide in the late afternoon. Beaune is wine-capital of Burgundy and has a picturesque old town. Visit „Hôtel-Dieu“, the old hospital of poor.

You cycle via Chagny to castle Rully, a medieval fortress in midst of vineyards. Join the Voie Verte, an old railway track converted into a cycle path and cycle to Buxy. The picturesque little town surrounded by vineyards.

On your last cycle day, you enjoy the idyllic river valley of Saône, a 480 km long river, springing in the Vosges and mouthing into river Rhone near Lyon. When you reach Beaune, take your time for a stroll through the picturesque little town.

Threw the railway tunnel of Bois Clair (longest bike tunnel in Europe, length 1, 6 km). Afterwards you cross the boarder to Macônnais. The last 20 km you cycle relaxed into the valley of Macôn. We recommend visiting the old city and historic bridge. Especially in the evening, you have awesome views from the new promenade next to river Saône.

You cycle through „Bresse“to Ferme-de-la-Foret, a typical farm of the region. Louhans is capital of Bresse and is justly named “the most beautiful detour of France”.

Today you should stop in St. Loup-de-Varennes. Here photography was invented and the local museum of photography shows many exhibits from this time. In the afternoon, you meet again with river Saône and reach Chalons-sur-Saône, second largest city of Burgundy with important river port for the export-goods wine and corn.

Der letzte Radltag führt gemütlich und beschaulich durch das romantische Tal der Saône, eines 480 km langen Flusses, der in den Vogesen entspringt und in Lyon in die Rhône mündet. In Beaune haben Sie heute noch Zeit für einen Bummel durch das sehr schmucke Städtchen. Beenden Sie Ihre Radreise mit einem guten Burgunder!

Tour character

               Easy cycle tour, partly using the „Voie Verte“(old railway tracks or bridle paths along canals), thus avoiding climbs. Otherwise you are using cycle paths off the traffic and minor roads.

Wasser und Wein...
Alles hat geklappt-ein großes Lob für die Organisatoren! Kein Problem mit Buchungen, freundlicher Gepäcktransport (so gegen 9h30 wurde das Gepäck abgeholt, und es war immer vor unserer Ankunft da), gute wenn auch nicht perfekte Webbeschreibung, Gratulation zu den Eurobike-Wegweiser-Aufklebern. Abwechslungsreich in der Streckenführung (Fahrradwege, Treidelwege, manchmal unbefestigte Wanderwege, wenig befahrene Landstraßen), der Landschaft (Weinberge, entlang der Saône sowie durch die 'France profonde') sowie in den Herbergen. Leichte Strecke, mit Ausnahme der (empfehlenswerten) Auffahrt nahe der Roche de Solutré (vor Macon). Bis auf Louhans (Cheval Rouge) korrekte Hotels. Maison d'Hôtes in Bouxy besonders hervorzuheben!
