This journey picks up where Spain's Costa Brava left off on France's enchanting southernmost border with Spain for forward-motion views of steeply terraced hillsides next to the Mediterranean Sea. Then you'll cycle through kilometers of stunningly beautiful country under canopies of sycamore-lined back-roads west of the Rhone Valley. The fun continues- just floating through the picture-perfect landscapes and then happening upon quintessential fortified villages like Pouzilhac and Pont St. Esprit. More adventure awaits starting on the Canal Du Midi in Languedoc, riding through vineyards toward Beziers and finally in Cathar-country near Carcassonne, a most impressive fortified medieval town and castle which you'll also visit. Bon voyage! 72 minutes cycling through France!
