Maps of our canal adventures
Date of this update: 5th August 2015.
****** You can click on this map of France and Belgium to see where we went in 2015. Just follow the thick blue line. We had planned to go down the Nivernais Canal to Clamency and return. We did this fairly quickly in 2010 but missed some good places. We succeeded in going further than expected- to Chitry les Mines and cycled over the top of the summit level tunnels before returning down the Nivernais. We returned to Migennes again and started down the Bourgogne Canal from Migennes to St Jean de Losne. We were very fortunate to escape the floods in the Nivernais Canal and the Yonne River because the Burgundy Canal has been relatively unaffected. We reached the summit and passed through the low and narrow Pouilly tunnel with only some minor scratches. Next, we proceeded via Dijon to the Saone river and then up the Canal du Centre, Canal Lateral to the Loire, Briare Canal and the Loing canal. We went up the Petite Seine (upper Seine) as far as one can go upstream to Nogent and then rode our bikes further to Pont sur Seine. We met our youngest grand child, daughter and family at Moret sur Loing before returning via the Seine and Yonne to Anja's winter resting place at Migennes.
Where are we?
We are back in Australia and Anja is on the land near the Yonne River at Migennes.
Where have we come from and where are we next headed?
