Itinerary

You cycle in the direction of Pontigny. You cycle through short stretches of forest to the Cistercian church. It is one of the last witnesses to the great spiritual movement of the Cistercians. After the visit, continue your journey to Chablis. Here, before the the extensive valley of the fruity white wine valley, a wine tasting awaits you.

You then pass through the valley of the Serein with picturesque winegrowing villages and finally reach Noyers-sur-Serein. Noyers is one of the hundred most beautiful villages in France because of its medieval townscape.

The so-called "Terre Plaine" accompanies you on your journey towards Avallon. You will pass through Montreal. High above the river valley, this town with its 12th century collegiate church is well worth a visit. After arriving in Avallon, you can take an evening stroll. Today's route takes you through one of the most beautiful valleys in Burgundy - the Vallée du Cousin. The Cousin meanders fantastically through the romantic river valley.

It goes through the lovely Avallonnais, past hedgerow landscapes and grazing Charolais cattle to Vézelay. Before that, you cross the viaduct at a dizzying height with a view of the 17th century bridge of Pierre-Perthuis. A magnificent landscape that leads up to the eternal hill of Vézelay.

Vézelay has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its basilica with its Romanesque sculptural decoration is worth a longer stay. About 150 figural capitals are on display, they taught many pilgrims on the way to Compostella and still impress with their expressiveness today. Space and light are available here and captivate every visitor. Wonderful descent from Vézelay to Escolives. Through deep forest landscapes we cycle along the Canal de Nivernais. And here on the towpath to Escolives.

From Escolives, cross the Yonne and the Canal du Nivernais for a detour to the beautiful wine villages of the Côtes d'Auxerre. A tasting of Crémant de Bourgogne is on the agenda before you return to the Canal du Nivernais. Continue along the banks of the Yonne to return to Auxerre.

After breakfast individual return journey or start of your extension.

The route

Reisebewertung
Uns hat die Reise sehr gut gefallen, die Unterkünfte waren gut gewählt. Die Tour war abwechslungsreich, ab und zu auch mal anstrengend, was aber nicht negativ war. Die zur Verfügung gestellten Reiseunterlagen waren nicht unbedingt gut und praktisch teilweise verwirrend, zumal man 2 verschiedene Hefte bekommt, dann ist das doch sehr umständlich. Wir hatten aber Gott sei Dank noch die GPS-Tracker, die waren doch sehr hilfreich

Das hört sich nach einem gelungenen 🚴Urlaub an und wir bedanken uns für Ihre schöne Bewertung. Unsere Partner-Agentur stellt einmal Kartenmaterial und einmal eine Routenbeschreibung zur Verfügung. Nicht optimal, weil das dann unterwegs etwas schwierig zu handhaben ist. Nächstes Jahr werden wir da behilflich sein, damit unsere Kunden mit ihren Unterlagen zufriedener sind. Auf jeden Fall sind die GPX-Daten immer hilfreich Navigationsunterstützung.

Ein schönes Frankreich-Erlebnis
Die Reise war insgesamt informativ, die Region ist sehr abwechselungsreich. Man sieht viel vom ländlichen Frankreich. Unterkünfte waren bis auf eine (siehe weiter unten) alle okay! Streckenführung zum Teil sehr viel über öffentliche Straßen. Die Einführung am ersten Tag durch Mme. Rousseau in Auxerre seh informativ!
