Yonne Route

The bike route is a figure of eight with Auxerre, the largest town on the route, at the centre. The local railway system follows three quarters of the route. The major part of the tour fauxerre tour horlogeollows beautiful rivers and canals (and sois reasonably flat) before going up into the hills between Auxerre and Chablis past a number of specialist wineries until you reach the world famous Chablis wine region.

Accommodation isplentiful but, given the popularity of this area, finding somewhere to stay at short notice can be difficult in high summer. The accommodation column below provides an indication of the number of hotels or similar in each village/town. The first column in the table shows the main route in blue to the west, green south east and red to the north east and is the same as the coloured route on the Yonne Map .
