Beaujolais Greenway

Lyon & the Rhône Valley

Set on a converted railway line, this new greenway runs for 15km between Beaujeu and Belleville. It's paved and mostly flat, making it ideal for cycling, inline skating or running. From Beaujeu, you can access the greenway about 1km southeast of the tourist office. Hire bikes are available at La Maison du Terroir Beaujolais.
