La Loire à vélo - Cycling Loire trail

Loire à Vélo is an immense 800 kilometers cycle tourism route, a véloroute like no other in France. It runs from Cuffy (near Nevers) to Saint-Brevin-les-Pins (opposite Saint-Nazaire), or vice versa. It crosses the Centre (Boulleret) and Pays de la Loire regions along the banks of France’s longest river, the Loire, through a valley dotted with countless treasures.

Loire à vélo

The Loire à Vélo forms the western end of Eurovelo 6, the great trans-European route. Each year, it is joined by new side routes : the routes of the Vélocéan network and the Vendée Atlantic coast, those of “Châteaux à Vélo” around Blois and Chambord and “Indre à Vélo”… Loire à Vélo is certain to make you want to discover Europe by bike and to make the most of a green, eco-responsible, cultural form of tourism.

The Canal Latéral à la Loire

Balade en bateau

The Canal Latéral à la Loire was constructed in 1838 to connect the Canal de Briare at Briare and the Canal du Centre at Digoin, a distance of 196 km. It replaced the use of the River Loire which had reliability problems arising from winter floods and summer droughts. Aqueducts were used to cross the River Allier at Le Guétin (in the commune of Cuffy) and the River Loire at Digoin, but because of the extreme length required, one was not built to cross the Loire River at Briare until 1896 when the Briare aqueduct was constructed.

It offers a good infrastructure for tourism. It is well developed and has very nice landing-places. The bases are situated in Briare and Digoin.
Boulleret with its Peseau lock (écluse) is a very pleasant and quiet canal section. There are a few shops (grocebery, bakery, restaurants...) at less than 2 kilometers.
