You'll start from Semur-en-Auxois castle down to the burgundy canal, following the route along small, narrow roads. You'll cycle through small towns and pass beautiful poppy and wheat fields until you reach Eguilly. Here you'll meet the Frenchman who has dedicated much of his time to renovating the once-magnificent castle. You'll enjoy a picnic lunch on the ground before you reach the shorelines of Lac de Pont where you'll find a secluded swimming spot where you can cool off in the sun. Once you are done, you'll then continue onto Semur-en-Auxois - a medieval town built on top of the towering cliffs in the Armancon river. You'll have some time to go and explore, taking in the old walls of the fortress and the many small shops, cobbled streets and old buildings.
