Did you know that today the number of bicycles sold in France outnumbers that of new cars?  The passion for two wheels is not a question of luck - bikes definitely have everything!

Bikes are ecologically sound.  They are good for your health.  But above all, a bike gives you once more, that precious sense of freedom.

Southern Burgundy understands this and offers a department-wide network of leisure cycling with over 1,000kms of green ways, cycle paths and signposted, safe touring circuits.

On an ordinary bike or a mountain bike, on your own or with others, exploring the Burgundy countryside during your holidays is as refreshing as a gentle breeze on a summer’s evening.

With 5 top level sports teams, 130 hectares of sports grounds, 190 sports facilities and 110 amateur clubs... perhaps even you will be infected by the sporting enthusiasm of Chalon-sur-Saône, recently awarded the title of “European Town of Sport”?
