If you have actually been riding mountain bicycle for a while you will understand that there are a lot of Free Apps readily available for path preparation. I’m not going to examine any of those here, that will be available in a brand-new post soon. The point of this post is to share the advancement of a path I’m dealing with the edge of the French Pyrenees, beginning and completing in Limoux.
It began with my favorable dependency to ride and especially since I didn’t wish to relax waiting on my children to complete their kayak and swimming training sessions. I had one hour; this flight took simply under 56-minutes.
Beginning and ending up at the Limoux Canoe/ Kayak club (a lot of parking here), the very first 3 kilometers follows the D129 to a best turn, signposted D229, Vendemies.
After that keep the obsolete train track to your right and keep right. After a brief range, the lane crosses the train and the river Aude can be seen on the right. Keep riding up until you see the train crossing to your left however, keep right, down the side of the vineyard. You are searching for a left decline a brief drop (at 5.1 KM). When on that, remain on the primary path and keep going; here’s where the enjoyable begins.
The path is no doubt an old path to the town of Alet-Les-Bains from Limoux and played a part in the building of the Limoux– Quillan train (just recently gotten of service). Proof of this is experienced by riding over numerous deeply ingrained rocks on big areas of the path. A number of these are big enough to toss you offline if you take your focus off the path to value the sensational views and the river Aude some 50-meters listed below in some locations along the singletrack.
No, I’m not going to share a lot of information about the path; where’s the enjoyable because? Suffice to state that this is an outstanding start to a path that is quickly going to climb up from 200 to 750 meters a couple of minutes out of the town of Alet-Les-Bains. Information of that coming quickly.
Look for the outside pool as you approach Alet and keep the swimming pool on your left as you fall a hill into a parking lot. Here you will discover a thermal swimming pool and exceptional without treatment water to top up your supply prior to you duplicate the path back to Limoux or go on into the mountains.
Alet-Les-Bains is an old town, one and a half hours from the sea and one hour from ski resorts. To each side of the town, the mountains reach 750 meters above water level. A wall, with 4 gates, integrated in the twelfth century to secure the abbey and homes can still be seen today.
Mtb Routes in France (VTT) are ranked for problem like ski paths. While I rate this strongly as a “Green” (simple), it’s not without threats so make sure to check out the path.

These are constantly really welcome, please do not be reluctant to include your own and path variations if you have them. If you intend on going to from out of location and require a location to remain, leave a remark and I will happily share a couple of tips.
