Day 1
Arrival Montepellier Train Station
Arrive at the Montpellier Saint Roch Train Station (old town), Sud de France Train Station (outside town), or Montpellier Airport, where you will meet the guide who will transfer you to Saint Guilhem le Désert to start your bike tour. Settle into your charming hotel, where you will have an orientation by the staff, and then you can explore this fabulous village. The village is a UNESCO-classified village and is a well-known spot on the Camino de Santiago, not only for its Abbey but also because it is built in a narrow valley. Go to the central plaza for a coffee or drink of your choice to soak up the ambiance of a village dating back to the year 804!
  • NOTE: in the Montpellier St. Roch Train Station your guide will meet you at the "information desk" on the first floor.

Day 2
Saint Gulhem le Désert - 3 Loop Rides
During your stay in Saint Guihem du Désert, you have a choice between 3 loops:
  • Loop trip from St. Guilhem le Désert to the Lac du Salagou (75km - +373m): The lake is itself fairly large, with a lot of visitors in the summer, but it is unique with a surrounding of red clay soil; the rocks dating back millions of years. The ride is rolling bypassing many small villages and wine country. Return to St. Guilhem, and if you have the energy, walk some of the trails leading out to the surrounding peaks.
  • Loop trip from St. Guilhem le Désert to the Gorges de l'Hérault (51km - +866m): Varying in depth from 200 to 300 meters, the Gorges are a real canyon hollowed out of the heart of the garrigues by the River Herault, its one and only architect. A magnificent sight, and a real oasis in the heart of these arid lands, the Hernault Gorges all have their own special characteristics: whether the waters are calm or turbulent, they are, above all, a fascinating spectacle.
  • Loop trip from St. Guilhem le Désert to Chateau and vineyards of Jonquieres (39km - +1013m): The soil comes from the local chalky rock (limestone consisting of calcareous fossil skeletal fragments of microscopic algae) of the Larzac Plateau. It is this terroir that the wines find their fundamental characteristics: power, aroma, and typical elegance. Return again to St. Guilhem tonight.
