Je roule, je marche. Pour être présente à l'essentiel, à la joie que mon corps éprouve à être en nature. Ce qui m'a amenée à l'ultra distance il y a plus de dix ans. La Terre est une merveille, elle nous accueille à bras ouverts. Je ne peux que l'honorer un peu plus chaque jour.
Beautiful route from vintages to grands crus and return to vintages with the beautiful countryside of Saône et Loire and its châteaux. First peach trees in bloom and spring weather. Nice getaway at the start of the season. Stop in Buxy for a pizza then in the village after Puoilly-Fuissé mid afternoon. Not a fart of wind .... in the back! Windless morning, more delicate afternoon wind issue. Tarmac especially, small roads, the canal bank path after Chagny, then forest paths, the greenway from Givry to Charnay les Mâcon, then small vineyard roads. The best, very little in contact with cars!

Superb course imagined based on the mountain bike trail indicated on the Komoot map: a little brown, red, GTM and a few bits of asphalt. From the forest, again and again. Sleepy towns and above all these spots of sunny light and shadow all along the paths and trails. The mossy granite stones, the often amber carpet, the roots and gullies of the potholes. And these trees, magnificent beings. What a joy and what a treat that these very well signposted, very well maintained mountain bike routes provide easy and playful fun. Thanks to the guys from the Saulieu mountain bike club! Lunch break in Alligny, at the museum café, a savory pancake in the bag and it's off again - nothing else before to refuel, nothing else after until Saulieu, where we made pastry!

First exploration of a new territory on the Dorian coast and therefore Bourguignon. Total scene change. Are at the limits of the Morvan and Auxois park. Course in the forest of Saulieu mainly - ponds, castles, Charolais and also some Salers in fields with very dry grass, two or three hamlets of farms, a totally dry stream where only round rocks can be seen and black that the water never ceases to sculpt in spring. And above all this forest where we are quickly confused, quickly caught up in a labyrinth of paths invaded by brambles, broom and heather, quickly destabilized by the dried-up quagmires and the felled branches and trunks left there. Incredible how the forests of Morvan are second to none. Wild. And then the enchantment, the magic of this path along the river bed, immersed in the time of the druids and magicians - the Morvan is also this, this difference that bewitches you. In short, what happiness!

Very nice mountain bike course, alternating sections where you have to work and those where you run happily. Varied terrain and landscapes, horizon, woods, a stream crossing, etc. Vineyards, the Alésia plateau and Mont Auxois, the pretty village of Alise Ste Reine, the outskirts of Vénarey les Laumes, an old mill and a beautiful, long climb to the top of Flavigny. Then gravel tracks, technical paths and forest tracks before diving on the D9 near Flavingy sur Ozerain.
