This EuroVelo 6 stage takes you along a portion of Burgundy’s Voie Bleue greenway beside the Saône that hasn’t been completed yet. Even if the cycle route between Verdun-sur-le-Doubs and Chalon is in part provisional, offering a mix of stretches of greenway and portions on relatively busy roads, it’s still enjoyable.

Route
Greenway from Verdun-sur-le-Doubs to Bragny. Take care on the complicated stretch around Gergy (following a disused railway line, then the banks of the Saône). Then there’s a provisional linking route along relatively busy roads to Chalon (D 5 road). Arriving at Chalon, take Avenue Kennedy, with its marked-out cycle lane, for the historic centre.
