64,82 km cycling route from Rocamadour to Cahors

La Vagabonde cycle route gradually distances itself from the Dordogne Valley, leading cyclists into the Parc Naturel Régional des Causses du Quercy with its distinctive, rocky atmosphere – this park has been classified a UNESCO Geopark for its exceptional geology. As well as the extensive limestone plateaus that characterize the area, it also boasts steep green valleys enclosed by high cliffs. Having tackled a stretch along the Causse du Quercy by bike, crossing several villages, you then ride down into the secretive Vers Valley. Cutting north-south through its causse, this tributary of the Lot River has carved out a path from Labastide-Murat to its confluence with the Lot River at the village of Vers. Along the way, crossing the villages of St-Martin de Vers and St-Sauveur la Vallée, stop to drink in their atmospheres. Finally, follow the Lot Valley to reach Cahors, designated a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire for its cultural riches, and capital of the département, or county, of the Lot. This little city boasts a southern atmosphere, rich historical vestiges and many culinary treats!

Don't miss 

  • Rocamadour: with the sacred religious shrine at its core and the medieval village built around it, all clinging to terraces built into a dramatic cliffside, the natural and architectural stone lit in particularly fiery colours by the setting sun, Rocamadour rises 120m above a canyon through which the Alzou, a tributary of the Dordogne River, flows.
  • Carlucet: a character-filled village surrounded by magnificent green hills, Carlucet offers visitors a true haven of peace.
  • Saint Martin de Vers: a picturesque village close to the river, known for its Romanesque church dating back to the 12th century and a listed historic monument.
  • Vers: located at the confluence of the Vers and Lot Rivers, the village of Vers is backed by dramatic limestone cliffs but conceals secretive little corners, such as a Roman aqueduct carved into the rock, beautifully colourful waterfalls and a little chapel, Notre Dame de Velles.
