Via Fluvia: 100km of greenways connecting the Loire to the Rhône
Signposting and layout along the Via Fluvia
The Via Fluvia cycle route is signposted with its own logo, except between Maisonneuve (2km outside Riotord) and Saint-Marcel-les-Annonay, where a provisional section of route that isn’t signposted takes you along roads for the time being, until that stretch of old railway track and Le Tracol Tunnel have been suitably adapted for cyclists. Remember to download the relevant .pdf files and .gpx tracks for the route.
