Le tour de Bourgogne à vélo


Burgundy boasts nearly 1000km of signposted and safe cycling trails, the majority of which form part of the itinerary of “Le Tour de Bourgogne à vélo ®”. This major circuit, and many others besides, are all listed on this site. They are made up of Greenway routes and cycling routes, usually running alongside canals along the towpaths, but also travelling down former railway lines or across small roads and pathways through the vineyards.
These cycling trails will provide you with an overview of everything that makes Burgundy so charming.

Brochures are available at the Tourist Office.
