This region of France is a wonderful location for a light French cycling holiday with major river valleys clad in green woods and forests. Often as though hanging from cliff edges you see many sandstone fortified villages. Romantic ancient 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.
A light journey along three rivers: Tarn, Sorgue and Dourbie. The trip goes through three very different sceneries in the Natural Parc des Grands Causses:

The first part you will be cycling in the Canyon of the Dourbie to Nant.
You'll see the vultures circling high above you.
