On your way to Melvieu you will bike over 2 railway bridges and through 4 railway tunnels. For holiday makers who don't like tunnels: you will be able to avoid the longer ones (more than 800m).
Your start is in Albi, a beautiful, Southern Italian alike town along the Tarn river.

With its famous architecture, alike the architecture of Toulouse, from which it is only 75 kms away, its cathedral, of the times of the Cathar and its Museum Toulouse Lautrec, Albi - a beautiful, Southern Italian alike town along the Tarn river - is a perfect start and end for an Moderate cycling holiday and also a perfect family trip.

Albi, UNESCO World Heritage Centre.
On the banks of the Tarn river in south-west France, the old city of Albi reflects the culmination of a medieval architectural and urban ensemble. Today the Old Bridge (Pont-Vieux), the Saint-Salvi quarter and its church are testimony to its initial development (10th -11th centuries). Following the Albigensian Crusade against the Cathar heretics (13th century) it became a powerful episcopal city. Built in a unique southern French Gothic style from local brick in characteristic red and orange colours, the lofty fortified Cathedral (late 13th century) dominates the city, demonstrating the power regained by the Roman Catholic clergy. Alongside the Cathedral is the vast bishop's Palais de la Berbie, overlooking the river and surrounded by residential quarters that date back to the Middle Ages. The Episcopal City of Albi forms a coherent and homogeneous ensemble of monuments and quarters that has remained largely unchanged over the centuries.

On your way from Creissels you will ride under and above the viaduc de Millau.

You will be cycling daily 50 km average through the friendly Valley of the Tarn.
Near Broquiès
