Toulouse to Castelnaudary (48km)

From Toulouse to Carcassonne, this section of the Canal des 2 Mers à Vélo cycle route plunges you into the splendid history of the Canal du Midi, designed in the 17th century to link Garonne to Mediterranean. The way is enchanting, following this very pretty canal with its very southern French feel. Be especially careful along the section south of Port Lauragais (and Avignonet-Lauragais), as it is not laid out or signposted at time of writing and requires appropriate bikes.
