Built on the old Mazamet/Bédarieux railway line, and running for some 75 kilometres, the Passa Païs greenway offers a protected path for cyclists, with hardly any climbs. Several bike hire companies are located near the greenway and offer rentals for half a day, a day or more.
For more adventurous riders, discover the Grande Traversée du Massif Central, a beautiful route between the Larzac and the Mediterranean sea, which you can find out more about here or at France vélo Tourisme.
