27,74 km cycling route from Cahors to Saint-Cirq-Lapopie

We cycle between two of Occitanie's Grands Sites: Cahors and Saint-Cirq-Lapopie. Where the River Lot meanders at the foot of spectacular limestone cliffs. While waiting for the future greenway on the old railroad line, we climb from Arcambal along the pretty départementale 8, which opens onto wildly beautiful landscapes. You might as well be prepared to play with the derailleur or to equip yourself with an electrically-assisted machine. At Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, the silhouette of the medieval village so popular with surrealists looms over the valley. A real postcard. Leave your bike at the tourist office and explore the village on foot.

The cycle route

Provisional, unmarked route. Exit the historic center of Cahors via the Cabessut bridge, then minor roads with little traffic to the D911 at Cavaniès. Greenway under construction, scheduled for 2023. Take care when crossing the busy D911 as far as the entrance to Arcambal. From Arcambal to Saint-Cirq-Lapopie: low-traffic but steep D8.
