Cycling along at your own pace, you're able to absorb the sights, scents, and atmosphere in a way you never could on an ordinary holiday. This region of France is a wonderful location for your French cycling holiday with cristal clear rivers clad in green woods and forests. Ancient Templars villages are just some of the delights to see on your French cycle tour in the extraordinary variety of landscapes of Aveyron and the Parc Naturel des Grands Causses.

 

You'll start in Tarn valley. Quietly cycling under the Millau viaduct you ride to the medieval town of St. Rome-de-Tarn.

In the second part you'll be riding on the Causse du Larzac, a limestone plateau from where the Templars started their crusades to Jerusalem in th 12th and 1Waterfall of St. Rome-de-Tarn3th century, nowadays known because of José Bové's struggle with the globalized world.

You'll find Roquefort and its cheese caves on your way (6 days trip). Through the beautiful valley of the Sorgues you'll be heading to Roquefort and visiting the Roquefort cheese caves.

If you stay an extra night in Château de Sorgues you will  make a tour to the Templars cities. 

From St. Jean du Bruel you will ride via Nant, an old Benedictin monastery, through the canyon of the Dourbie back to Millau/Creissels.

In this part of  (Southern France, 'le midi' ) a district with an extraordinary diversity of landscapes, that you will get to know when hiking and cycling through this far South part of the Massif Central: mountains, limestone plateaus (Causses), lush green valleys, roaring rivers (Tarn, Jonte, Dourbie, Lot, Aveyron, Dourdou). Lots of small villages here instead of large urban areas with dense population. Le Tourisme Vert (green tourism) as they say here. No fast food here, but the French cuisine, honest food in small family runned hotels where you will get a warm welcome.

Transfer from the airport to first hotel in Creissels can be arranged for.
