Tarascon
Cavaillon
Guarding the Rhône, Tarascon’s medieval fort signals the entrance to the Alpilles for cyclists on the Méditerranée à Vélo route. The town of St-Rémy-de-Provence makes an unmissable stop for atmosphere and for understanding Van Gogh’s fascination with this area, marked by the special light emanating from the local limestone. The greenway from St-Etienne-du-Grès to St-Rémy-de-Provence is a successful transformation of a former rail line, with stopping points for cyclists as well as locals to enjoy. The last stretch of this stage takes you along pretty little farm tracks, with beautiful views over the Alpilles. A cycle path leads you across the Durance River, facilitating your arrival in the town of Cavaillon.

The route

Take care crossing between Beaucaire and Tarascon. The bridge over the Rhône here has a faded cycle lane marked along it. A few provisional signposts (with yellow backgrounds) have been put up at the exit to Tarascon. 
Farming tracks run parallel to the D970 and D99B roads.

Take care crossing the D570N road and on the stretch along the D99 (Avenue de Tarascon) at the entrance to St-Etienne du Grès. You can rejoin the greenway via the D99 after the village, but take care on the left turn.

Take care arriving at St-Rémy de Provence. There are cycle lanes marked on the D99 road, but this is very busy.

Smooth surfaces: along the whole of this stage.
