Cycling from the Atlantic to the Black Sea, the Véloroute des Fleuves
When it was created, this cycle route was also called "the cycle route of rivers". From Saint-Brévin-les-Pins, you follow the Loire by bike to Nevers and then Digoin, where the Canal du Centre takes over to the Saône. After a few pedal strokes in the heart of Burgundy by bike, the Doubs accompanies the cyclists to leave them in the hands of the Rhine which devotes itself to the sources of the Danube.
EuroVelo 6 now follows the second longest river in Europe to its mouth, passing through magnificent cities such as Passau, Vienna, Budapest and Belgrade.
EuroVelo 6: the most successful European bicycle route
If EuroVelo 6 is the most popular route, it is largely due to its infrastructure and signposting. The route is fully signposted from Saint-Brévin-les-Pins to Belgrade, and from the Rhine to Belgrade, cyclists have the chance to cycle on dedicated cycle paths most of the time.
If you want to start your first major cycling route, choose the Eurovelo 6. Between beautiful cities, a very rich heritage (Loire castles, Wachau valley...) and wilder parts, it is a real pleasure and a paradise for cyclists.
