22,73 km cycling route from Saint-Cirq-Lapopie to Carjac

The heart of the Lot valley stretches between the cliffs and hills of the Causse du Quercy. A beautiful cycling route on the left bank of the river, winding at the foot of white cliffs from which emerge all the shades of green of a wild vegetation. There are many tourist attractions, such as Cénevières and its castle perched above a meander, and Larnagol, another castle with a moving church on the banks of the Lot, before disembarking in the medieval circulade of old Cajarc.

The cycle route

Provisional, unmarked route. From Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, we take the D8, a winding road with moderate traffic that follows the Lot at the foot of the cliffs to Gaillac, with a few good climbs at the end. Take care on the D19 after Calvignac and on the D662 at the entrance to Cajarc. Eventually, this route will become a greenway on the old railroad line.

No trains on this route.


  • Car LIO  : Cahors - Saint-Cirq-Lapopie – Cajarc – Capdenac with space for bikes in the cabin in a dedicated area or in the baggage hold.
