Montagnac / Agde The Grande Traversée du Massif Central by mountain bike
Elevation of the stage
Between Montagnac and Castelnau-de-Guers, the route alternates between smooth-rolling tracks and enjoyable, sometimes technically demanding paths. Dismount to cross the Trou du Renard (3.5km after Bessilles) as there’s a very steep slope here for a few metres and you have to cross a stream, going under the main road. The final stretch of the route is easy. The paths through the vines are suitable for bunny hops. There are some parts along roads, but others, nearer Agde, beside the Canal du Midi and the Hérault River. Good tracks allow you to cycle rapidly through the resort of Cap d’Agde to reach the end of the route at the true cape, looking down on the beaches of Grande Conque and La Plagette.
