By Bike - Accueil Vélo
Discover Carcassonne by bike
The city of Carcassonne can also be discovered by bike thanks to the development of the Accueil Vélo label.
Discover Carcassonne by bike
The bicycle has become the essential means of transport on our holidays. Both practical and enjoyable, cycling allows you to take the time to discover the heritage and landscapes of a destination with family and friends. Cycling, its heritage, to appreciate the landscapes, the encounters… Slow tourism is trendy!
Its practice appears to be an antidote to the stress of everyday life and who better than the Canal du Midi to offer this space of authenticity, of serenity where the lived experience takes precedence over the speed of discovery…
The “Accueil Vélo” label promotes the quality of tourist services and facilities. Choosing a service provider with the label means that you can be sure of receiving specific facilities such as a secure bicycle shelter at your accommodation, a bicycle park at a visitor’s site, documentation and, above all, a specific welcome and reliable information for cycle tourists!
Accommodation, restaurants, rental/repair companies, historical, natural and heritage sites, etc. are all waiting for you. The “Accueil Vélo” logo indicates the presence of a service provider offering adapted services.
