VIDEO:budget family cycling tour in Aveyron Grands Causses

A light cycling tour along Tarn river through the friendly Valley of the Tarn.
Start and finish in St.Affrique.
You will ride partly on the old railway track that never got operational. The trip can be light because we will transfer you to the plateau du Lévézou, so you will have long distances where you will be freewheeling down and back to the valley and enjoy the beautiful views on the St.Affricain hills.

In Broquiès you'll have an opportunity for canoeing and swimming with the children in Tarn river (an adventurous, but not dangerous trip of 2 hours).
At the lake of Villefranche-de-Panat you can swim.

Suited for family's with children from age 8.
Two transfers to bridge elevation gains of more than 300m altitude are included.

Restaurants and hotels in this trip are 2* average.
Maximum daily cycling distances: 12 miles, 24 kms.

You can book extra nights (just for a rest day or a cycling loop around the town) in any of the hotels you wish.
