This sector will take cyclists to the heart of Beaujolais. Straddling mountains and vineyards, the loops of sector 6 promise all cyclists to find what they are looking for, on loops that are both accessible and difficult.
A 40 km course through the territories of the Beaujolais crus, without great difficulty, except for the climbs (accessible with good management) to Chiroubles and after Fleurie. This loop will be appreciated by cyclists, even those with little training. The tourist interest (many castles…) of Beaujolais increases the pleasure of riding. Kilometres to consume without moderation.
The Beaujolais vineyard is rich in twelve appellations. It comes from the Gamay grape variety. Chardonnay is also part of this wine-growing region but it remains confidential. In the south of the region, the red, rosé and white wines of the two AOP Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages are produced. The latter extends to the north and joins the ten crus: Brouilly, Chénas, Chiroubles, Côte de Brouilly, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin à Vent, Régnié and Saint-Amour. Quite apart, the “Beaujolais Nouveau” reveals its canaille spirit to celebrate its international release in November.
