The Cycle Route
Starting from Cavaillon, this stage takes you along quiet little roads, notably going through a forested area, Valloncourt, to reach the banks of a small canal with a tarmacked towpath, followed by a quiet road serving local residents. From Mérindol on, small, calm hilly roads give your leg muscles a warm-up on the way to Lourmarin. This is followed by a steady climb to Cucuron.
Please note that after Valloncourt, the crossing of the D973 road needs to be handled with care. Plus, at time of writing, there are two stretches of road in bad condition before and after Mérindol.
