By bike

The tranquil Nivernais canal and the cycle route that runs alongside it, are the ideal setting for a spot of exercise such as walking, a family bike ride, or roller skating.

And, of course, the route is also suitable for wheelchairs.

THE NIVERNAIS CHALLENGE

Since 2010, the ""Nivernais Challenge"" has provided both Sunday cyclists and the more seasoned cyclist with the opportunity to enjoy a unique facility: The Nivernais canal cycling path with its 175 km of uninterrupted routes, from Auxerre and Decize; the beautiful scenery makes you forget you're cycling! The Nivernais Challenge comprises:

175 km bike ride in one day, from sunrise to sunset!
Reduced speed (15-17 km/h) means that everyone can take part and even chat to their neighbour while doing so...
And if you don't want to do the whole thing, just choose the section that you like. The main thing is to take part!

The brave amongst you can do a return trip! And here's a little insight into the challenge!
