The official signposted route is provisional from Palinges until the greenway and is for experienced cyclists only, as there are many slopes. Alternatively follow the D 974 road beside the canal from La Gravoine; traffic is quite busy, but you avoid the slopes. The greenway starts north of Paray, leading into town via the Moulin-Liron Park (after lock 23).
