A great bike ride for everyone
A long walk on small roads through fields, meadows and campsites far from the tumult of the coast


  1. 1. Start by going down towards Camping "Les Mimosas" to take the Route de la Massane on the right. the fast road is on the right for more than one kilometer. Take the last bridge that passes under the fast road at the level of the Auberge du Roua and the River Massane

  2. 2. Cross at the ford  and  proceed  immediately up the slope on the left to rejoin  the Rue des Micocouliers. Turn left towards the Route to  Sorède and pass in front of the fire station. At the small roundabout, follow the Chemin de San Père on the right, and cross the roundabout of the national road.  Be extra careful here as in this sector, the roundabout does not have markings on the ground  indicating   the presence of a bicycle  lane.
  3. 3. Take the small road to the Mas Cristine winery, go on the bridge over the SNCF railway and continue on the Chemin de la Couloumine. At the crossroads of Camping "Le Canigou", follow the path of Taxo d'Amont which leads you to the castle.
    4. Take the Sainte Colombe Road which turns right after the castle. Cross the two fords to reach the country road parallel to RD 914 at the restaurant "La Campagne". Go left to take the roundabout and pass under the bridge of the expressway towards the composting area. Follow the path of the Pas de l'Arbre Blanc for several kilometers.
  4. 5. Walk along the river until you reach the second ford which crosses the Pla de la Barca Trail. Take the path that crosses the Route de Taxo to the sea, the Chemin de la Salanque and leads to the Avenue de la Retirada 1939.
 Follow this avenue towards the beach to join the vegetated waterfront promenade. Head south to reach the harbor and its docks. At the boaters parking, join the dirt road in front of you. Follow this route to the secure cycle path that leads you to Valmy.
