Montchanin / Montceau-les-Mines

[ Cycle routes EuroVelo 6 ] [ The Canal du Centre by bike from Chalon to Digoin / Bourgogne-Franche-Comté ]
  • 12 km
  • intermediaire Level Intermediate

This EuroVelo 6 stage is punctuated by many sites bearing witness to Southern Burgundy’s rich industrial past. The historic mining town of Montceau-les-Mines is a stop that proves both surprising and enjoyable. There isn’t a greenway set up along this stretch for the time being, but you take a calm small road beside the canal.

At present, there isn’t any greenway between Montchanin and Montceau-les-Mines, but in contrast to the St-Léger-sur-Dheune > Montchanin stage, along this stage, the D 974 road is not busy at all and is really easy for cyclists.

The Chavannes Washery to Montceau-les-Mines

It would be difficult pass by without noticing this mineral processing centre. The washery looks like a huge industrial cathedral, whose buildings are divided into several levels over an area of 8 square kilometres.
