Cycle Paths and Routes

Véloroute de la Vallée du Tarn (Tarn Valley Cycle Path)

The véloroute connects Saint-Sulpice-sur-Tarn and Albi and is well signposted. The route is 63 km long in total and winds its way through the picturesque villages and towns of the Tarn valley. These include Saint-Sulpice, Rabastens-Couffouleux, Lisle-sur-Tarn, Gaillac, Tessonnières, Marssac-sur-Tarn, Albi-Ville and Albi-Madeleine. All these towns are serviced by the train – a useful fallback if you decide to take it easy or want to spend longer exploring!

Another great resource for planning your trip is the website of the International Federal Week of Cycle Tourism. In 2015 the event was held in Albi and attended by more than 15,000 cyclists from all over Europe. The website is active still and provides route maps and useful information about cycling in the Tarn.
