Cycle touring from our campsite in Valras Plage
Cycling actually offers a lot of benefits . First of all, cycling is non destructive for the environment and also enables you to reach areas you wouldn’t have been able to reach otherwise. Thus, you could for instance go and observe the “Etang de Vendres’” exceptional fauna and flora, in the immediate vicinity of our campsite with your bike.
Moreover, cycling is an activity that can be practised both by adults and children, and can therefore also be enjoyed by families. Why not take your entire family for discovery bike tours or for more adventurous tours on the thousands of hiking and bicycle paths offered by the region’s hinterland !
Cycling enables you to evolve at your own pace, according to your abilities and preferences. It is therefore characterised by a whole diversity of practises ranging from calm and peaceful bike strolls along the Canal du Midi for instance, to adventurous downhill mountain biking in the hinterland. Cycling stimulates your cardiovascular system and increases endurance, with limited impact on your joints. It is recommended to get fit again or to remain fit!

Béziers, ( 15kms away from our campsite) and the Canal du Midi are right on Bicycle Touring Route Nr.8, which links Cadiz in Spain with Cyprus in the Eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea.
