Surface of the stage
The Lido cycle track goes from Carnon-Plage to La Grande-Motte. At La Grande-Motte, there is a stretch cyclists share with pedestrians. Then follow the cycle path along the D255 road between Les Abîmes bridge and Le Grau-du-Roi’s swing bridge.
The route is being finalized along the Canal du Rhône à Sète. There is provisional signposting between Gallician and Saint-Gilles, signposting along quiet roads between Fourques and the entrance to Beaucaire, and also towards Arles station.
Take care on the D6572 road at the entrance to Saint-Gilles and when crossing the D6113 road. You follow small but well-surfaced farm roads after the D6113 in the direction of Beaucaire.
Smooth surfaces: along the whole of this stage.
Le Grau du Roi <> Plage de l'Espiguette: from the centre of Le Grau-du-Roi make for Place de la Fête Foraine to join a cycle track leading you safely down to hugely popular L'Espiguette Beach.
Port de Gallician <> Gare de Vauvert: from Gallician’s port, a lovely greenway with a smooth surface leads you very safely as far as Vauvert, with its regional TER train station.
Saint-Gilles: there is no signposting in place to reach the centre of Saint-Gilles, so leave the cycle route at the level of the Route des Iscles (the D179 road) to reach it.
Carrefour de Fourques: Fourques is an important crossroads for cyclists on the major ViaRhôna route, offering the choice between heading on to Sète, using a section in common with the Méditerranée à Vélo route, or continuing along ViaRhôna, going via Arles towards Port-Saint-Louis du Rhône. This crossroads is well signposted. From it, the ancient city of Arles lies 8km away.
