John and I have been working in between World of Hell intervals over the past couple of weeks and this is the result: Cycling Languedoc’s latest and greatest self-guided tour – Nîmes-Narbonne Backroads.
This tour follows the same basic script as our first one and offers:
- 7 days / 6 nights, mostly in 4-star hotels and charming B&Bs.
- Bike rental for the week.
- GPS and ‘route book’.
- All baggage transfers.
- All breakfasts and 3 dinners.
The route itself is, unlike our first tour (a loop), an A-to-B affair, but the towns on each end are on the same main train line and transportation is a breeze. The route winds its way through the back country of eastern and central (the departements of Gard and Hérault) Languedoc, following the chemin less traveled!
Along the way you’ll roll through some stunning natural scenery (Pic St. Loup and the Hérault gorge, for example), visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites (St. Guilhem le Désert and the Canal du Midi), and plenty of lovely villages (including unique-to-Languedoc circulade villages). Much more in store, but I’ll save the space and let you see for yourselves. For a full itinerary and lots more detail, follow the links provided here or click on the image below. Bonne Route!
