Canal Du Midi Cycling Tours

Our classic bike tour along the UNESCO world heritage site!  Complete packages available from 5 to 8 days.  Luggage transfers from hotel to hotel or luggage storage are available as well.  This bike tour is rated "easy" as it does not involve any climbing, so it can be enjoyed by both young and old alike. 

Only at Relax Bike Tours: detailed custom made maps with alternate route options passing through little villages and riding on small paved roads close to the Canal Du Midi!

These bicycle tours are also available as independent versions, where all you do is rent a bike and plan the rest yourself.  We can provide you a list of hotels along the Canal Du Midi that are both comfortable and have secure storage for bikes.

bicycle in front of malpas tunnel canal du midi franceExperience the famous Canal du Midi, located about 800 meters from our shop.  The canal was classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.  The most stunning features of this 240 Km long canal are within minutes riding of Béziers:  the famous Nine Locks of Fonseranes (Les Neuf Ecluses de Fonseranes), the beautiful aquaduct which allows the canal to cross the river Orb, and the awe inspiring Tunnel de Malpas, which allows the canal to pass through a mountain.  Tunnel de Malpas is a meeting point of many converging axis of travel.  The railroad passes underneath the canal at this point, while the old roman road, the Voie Domitienne, passes over the canal at exactly the same point. 

Right above the Tunnel de Malpas you can find one of the most important Gaulish villages in the South of France: L'Oppidum d'EnséruneThis settlement was occupied without interruption between the 6th Century BC and 1st Century AD.  The last settlers of this hilltop were the Romans.  As mentioned earlier, the Voie Domitienne passes below this hilltop, on its way from Italy to Spain.

Close to the Nine Locks of Fonseranes is a not well known curiosity of Béziers; a display of animated puppets.  This display is called the Creche Animee de Fonseranes.  The display was started in 1937 and has been build by two Christian monks.  The display is only open Wednesday and Saturday afternoons from 14H30 to 16H30.

Another exciting option is to rent a bike, drive down to the train station (400 meters from our shop), hop on a train heading to Agde (25 Km),  Sète (50 Km), Carcassonne (100 Km), or anywhere, and cycle back to Béziers along the Canal Du Midi.  The great thing about the trains here in France is that they accept bicycles for free.  Bicycles usually go onto the last wagon of the train.  It is recommended to check availability before hand if the train you are interested in will take bicycles, since not 100 percent of trains can take bicycles.  One can check online or simply ask inside the train station.
