Bicycle Hire in Southern Burgundy

Cycling is probably one of the nicest ways to explore our region.

The immediate surroundings of Castel Camping Château de l’Epervière are very flat and rural, offering excellent possibilities for cycling. Many of Burgundy’s little and quiet countryside roads make the flat Saône valley ideal for cycling. If you do not bring you own, bicycles can be rented from campsite reception every day. We rent out modern and comfortable bikes with 7 gears, no chain (shaft transmission! meaning no chain coming off!!)

“Voie Verte” and Cycling Paths

At 25 kilometers east from Castel Camping Château de l’Epervière, you will find the “Voie Verte”, a former rail road transformed into a cycling path from Givry (Chalon sur Saône) to Mâcon. This cycling path of over 70 kilometers is almost completely flat and will lead you through the typical Burgundy landscapes of vineyards and through traditional authentic villages.
The “Voie Bleue” (cycle path along the river, from Chalon sur Saône to Mâcon) is in project; the part from Tournus to Mâcon has recently been opened in 2012. The part running from Tournus to Chalon sur Saône should be finished before 2020.
