Bergundy France-interesting spots

Postby ColinOldnCranky » Sat Nov 30, 2013 8:10 pm

I am searching for spots to explore along the Bergundy Canal (Canal de Bourgogne) in France.

The story is that I will be taking a houseboat over 7 days from Montbard to Joigny in September 2014.

On those days that I am not skipper I am hoping to go for my early ride, essentially following the canal paths but with around half that time available for me to wander off and just enjoy the ride. Exploring worthy distractions and getting some mostly early morning pics and stuff. Each day the boats will move at about half my speed along the canal for around 3 to 4 hours, probably with some stops here and there. So I will have ample time to forage through the coutnryside.

If you have ridden (or walked) that area and have some memorable spots I would love to put them into the mix.

Of course, if you also have suggestions for the my travelling group as a whole (they will have bikes for when we tie up) I'd love to add those into the mix as well.

Pics, links, blogs etc all greatly appreciated. Man, I'm looking forward to this. :D

Appologies in advance as I expect that I will be bumping this thread from time to time.

(PS: Keep it to within three or four km off the canal though I may be able to workin in an exception here and there. Bear in mind that my touring max around 10-12kph - unicycle)
