Enjoy nature as you pedal!
We'd like to tell you about this leisure activity that combines sport, nature and discovery when you come and meet us in the Piémont Cévenol.
This walk starts by car from the Mas de Roux and heads towards the village of Anduze, famous for its pottery, its typical, lively village and its park, but also for its proximity to the village of Générargues, where you can also visit the Bamboo Grove.
Then head towards the village of Thoiras and park in the car park opposite the old railway station.
After 30 minutes, you'll have arrived in our beautiful countryside, lined with hills, vineyards and fields with very different crops from one season to the next.
You've arrived at the Rendez-vous to discover the Vélorail des Cévennes!
BUT WHAT IS IT?
In simple terms, it's a bike that runs on railway tracks. And here, it's on the Cevennes Steam Train.
Velorails have 2 pedal-powered seats with braking systems at the front, and 3 seats at the back.
A minimum of one adult is needed to propel the velorail, which can accommodate a total of 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children.
All have a sun protection cover.
3 routes are available!
