The Allier by bike
around Moulins

The Allier is a cycling department, accessible to the whole family. With its wild nature, rivers, forests and villages, this flat department is ideal for cycling. At the gateway to the Auvergne, discover valleys, plains and plateaus that offer picturesque views.
Cyclists will particularly appreciate the number of quiet roads, cycle paths and greenways in the department. The Auvergne cycle route, which runs along the river Allier and passes through the town of Moulins, offers superb pastoral scenery.


Thanks to its commitment to a policy of developing cycle routes throughout its territory, the Allier offers 1,500 kilometres of routes, including 60 kilometres of greenways.
Discover the Dompierre/Diou/Digoin greenway, ideal for a bucolic stroll along locks, canal bridges, aqueducts and even an abbey, as far as Le PAL. You can also explore the Canal de Berry greenway which joins the Forêt de Tronçais and the Montluçon/Néris-les-Bains greenway which follows an old railway line. There are three viewpoints along the way: from the Saint-Agathe viaduct, the Pérassier viaduct and the Néris viaduct.
