    Biking to Le Puy

    Has anyone biked from slightly south of Paris (probably Melun) to Le Puy-en-Velay? It looks like taking Véloroute des Pèlerins (EuroVelo 3) = La Scandibérique to Orleans, then taking the La Loire a velo to Le Puy might work. Wondering about being able to avoid Orleans by heading directly...
