Villeneuve sur Lot
Once you’ve taken the link along the Canal des 2 Mers Cycle Route (maybe via Tonneins), from Aiguillon, the Lot Valley Cycle Route leads you along a winding way, past old farms, dovecotes and little châteaux. Clairac, a lovely medieval village, tempts the taste buds, surrounded by strawberry fields. At Castelmoron, the extravagant town hall stands out beside the river. The town of Villeneuve-sur-Lot makes a very appealing, practical overnight stop on the Lot Valley Cycle Route.

The route is principally along small country lanes, with a few stretches on main roads, although the traffic on these is rarely busy. Between Casseneuil and Villeneuve-sur-Lot, there’s a lovely portion of greenway set along a disused railway line and alongside water. There are no significant slopes on this stage, which is suitable for seasoned cyclists.
Signposting is not entirely consistent, so look out carefully for the signposts, especially in the villages.
