20,46 km cycling route from Excideuil to Thiviers

This stage of the Flow Vélo plunges you into the heart of the natural beauty of the Dordogne and Périgord Vert. In Excideuil, you ride along the banks of the Loue. You'll need to put your feet up to stroll through the medieval town. Built by the Viscounts of Limoges, the Château d'Excideuil is a strategic site from which to watch over the passage from Périgord to Limousin. On Thursdays in Excideuil, the heart of the town becomes pedestrianized, and the colorful market is a must for lovers of local gastronomy. Continue into the heart of Périgord Vert! You'll cycle uphill and downhill, taking in many viewpoints and river banks... Once you're in Thiviers, stop to enjoy the town's many shops. A stopping-off point on the Chemin de Compostelle, Thiviers was surrounded by ramparts in the Middle Ages, its elevated position making it a sentinel, and a few buildings from this era still stand scattered along its narrow streets.
