French rivers

From Lyon to Avignon by bike on ViaRhôna

I cycle often

290 km along the Rhône by bike down to Avignon

Many spots recall the importance of river navigation and trade in times past. Several towns here have Roman roots, while famous vineyards line up along the steep, sunny slopes. Valence, Art and History city for its rich cultural legacy, is considered a gateway to the South of France. The air is charged with the smell of lavender fields that bloom in June and July. Slowly, we head towards Provence and the historic cities of Viviers, Châteauneuf du Pape and Avignon. The Rhône is relatively wild here, meandering past Mediterranean orchards and fields. ViaRhôna then arrives in Avignon, capital of Christianity in the Middle Ages.
