Cycling on an old train track: La Dolce Via

Did you know that there is a beautiful cycle road in the Ardèche departement? From the village of La voulte a 70 km cycle route runs all the way to Lamastre and st-Agrève. This route is called the Dolce Via and used to serve as a railway line. This makes the route flat and therefore ideal for cycling!




Along the way you come across the most beautiful views, because you cycle along the rocks and the river. It is really a great route and also very suitable for children. You can’t take your race bike however, as some parts of the route are unpaved. Also bring a bicycle pump and a tire repair kit, you never know.




Check on this website the route to follow. On the website is also indicated how long the route between the villages is and how much difference in height you can expect.
