Vezelay Way Cycling: the Vezelay Way, Chemin de Vézelay in French or Via Lemovicensis in Latin, is one of the classic Camino de Santiago routes in France, or Chemins de Compostelle. It takes bicigrinos (bike pilgrims) from Vézelay and the vineyards of Burgundy in central France to the feet of the Pyrenees in the Spanish border.
The pretty little town of Vézelay is the starting point of this Camino de Santiago route; Vézelay has been a popular destination for pilgrims visiting the shrine of Mary Magdalene, whose relics are reputedly kept in its magnificent Abbey. The route then continues across the hills of the Limousin region, the gorgeous Medieval city of Limoges, the valleys of the Périgord and the plains of Aquitaine and the Landes. The Vezelay Camino takes you to the St James Gate in Saint Jean Pied de Port, where you can join other pilgrims on the French Way to Santiago de Compostela.
