To sum up

And with the Mountainbike ?

The Mountainbikespot of the « Pays Coulangeois (is around Coulanges-la-Vineuse) which is only 2 steps from the Regional Nature Park Morvan away, is the first Mountainbikespot of the region. If the reputation of the region is at first made by the wine « Irancy » and « Bourgogne Coulanges-la-Vineuse », the Mountainbikers will like the charm of the hilly uplands and the steep-sided valleys, like the Yonne valley with the vineyards and the cherry trees. These mountainbiketours are the opportunity to meet up with friends, familly or alone with the nature. At all, 123km of marked trails with 6 tours with a distance between 6 and 50km ! Some tours are for everyone (2 green and 1 blue tour). And for the bravest, there are 3 very technical tours (2 red and 1 black tours).
