2 h 30 min
I begin / Family
La Voie Bleue cycle route leaves Auxonne’s fortifications behind, taking you via quiet little roads through the Burgundy countryside. You now encounter the EuroVelo 6 cycle route, and the Canal du Rhône au Rhin, which leads you gently back to the banks of the Saône. Following the east bank, as you come up to St-Jean-de-Losne, you get a wonderful view onto this port with its fine riverside quays. This makes for an unmissable stop along the route.
