This future cycling route will cross the Parc du Morvan from east to west and, in 2014, will join together the Departments of la Côte d'Or and la Nièvre.
It is getting closer and closer and, during 2014, the section between La Petite Verrière and Athez-Corcelles (part of the borough of Anost) will be finished.
The co-operating boroughs have created a cycling route that is good for tourist cyclists as well as mountain bikers. This section is around 70km long, runs from
east to west and makes use of the route of the former stop train between Autun and Château Chinon. At Autun the route uses existing bike paths to link with the 'voie vertes' of La Côte d'Or. Mountain bikers can indulge themselves as this section then connects with la Grande Traversée du Morvan.
Downhill mountain biking
This is fun! In the hills around 'Saint-Sébastien' (where you will find the famous 'Croix de la Libération' of Autun) three downhill tracks have been prepared in the most ecological way possible. Each track is around 1500 m long and suits several different levels of skill so that all ages, trained or not can enjoy them.
In the close surroundings of Autun you will find more than 140 km of marked circuits. A great chance to discover Autun and its beautiful landscape exactly as you choose. Departure for every circuit is at the 'base de loisirs Marcel Lucotte' close to the 'plan d'eau du Vallon' (the lake) in Autun.
You can also start from several other villages around Autun and discover the lovely hills and forests of the region. We have available for you copies of the examples of the marked circuits.
Anost: 4 marked circuits and a connection to the GR13(Ile de France-Bourgogne), the GR 'de pays' (Tour du Morvan) and the GR 'Bibracte- Alésia'. Departure is from the campsite.
Cussy-en-Morvan: 4 marked circuits departing from the centre of the village.
La Grande Verrière: 5 marked circuits all starting at the
We have also invested in two new bicycles adapted for smaller people (155 – 165 cm tall) and especially for women! It concerns a road bike Lapierre (from Burgundy!) and a mountain bike Nakamura (also made in France!).
We are happy to offer you the possibility to rent a bike. We have bought several quality tourist bikes, race bikes and mountain bikes. The bikes are (brand)new, adapted for the conditions of the area and are very well maintained.
