THE GREEN WAYS

An easy bike ride for families, for a morning or the day, along one of the many Green Ways that give Occitania all its bucolic charm. A mountain-bike ride through magnificent landscapes with exciting emotions guaranteed. Themed trails of varying lengths to explore attractive villages and picturesque sites… All the joys of cycling can be savoured in Occitania in a thousand different ways.

Easy and pleasant rides for everyone

In Occitania, you can choose between some forty Green Ways for cyclists, ranging from 4 to 145 Km, at an easy level. These trails are adapted to bikes, often running along former railway lines, on cycle lanes or river embankments: you can ride without coming into contact with cars.

The Green Ways will take you past such landmarks as the Pont du Gard, historic landscapes including the Cathar Pyrenees or the Upper-Languedoc regional nature park.

You can see the Green Ways by region on the website of the French Association for the Development of Cycling Routes and Green Ways.
