Independent Bike Trips

Bike Hire Canal Du Midi

 

You can decide how far you want to ride and which cities along the Canal Du Midi you wish to visit.  Excess luggage can be stored in our secure garage during your bike trip.  Some optional trips off the canal are Narbonne, Minerve, Lac de St. Ferreol, Vendres, Serignan, and many more.  Because this is an independent trip, there is no minimum of participants required.  You can depart and return whenever you like.  We will even email you a list of recommended hotels along the Canal Du Midi!

 

Procedure:

 

  • Arrive in Béziers, located along the Canal Du Midi.  You arrive by train, car or you can fly with Ryanair into the Béziers airport, and take the airport shuttle to Béziers.  You can either exit the shuttle at the Béziers train station (400 meters south of our shop) or the main bus station (called De Gaulle bus stop and located 600 meters north-east of our shop).
  • Get fitted with bicycles in our shop and pack your essentials into our waterproof pannier bags.  The handlebar bag is an ideal place to store your camera or phone.  Excess luggage can be stored in our garage for free.  (Our garage has a double steel door but nonetheless items will be stored at your own risk.)
  • Ride to train station 400 meters south of our shop and catch a train to any city along the Canal Du Midi.  Bicycles ride free with you on the TER trains.  Look for the bicycle symbol when ordering a ticket to make sure your train has a bicycle area; most trains do.  The bicycle area is usually towards the back of the train.  Popular choices are Toulouse, Carcassonne, Agde, and Sète.  From West to East, the train stations are: Toulouse, Labège, Escalquens, Baziège, Villefrance de Lauragais, Avignonet, Castelnaudary, Bram, Carcassonne, Lézignan-Corbières, Narbonne, Porte la Nouvelle, Coursan, Nissan, Béziers, Vias, Agde, Marseillan Plage, and Sète.  Note that the smaller the village, the less often a train will stop there.  Check train schedules here.
  • We recommend taking the train on the first day of your trip for two reasons.  First, the bike will be clean at the beginning of your trip. At the end of your trip, the bike might be very dirty or even muddy, which might pose a problem for train transport.  Secondly, very important, trains go on strike from time to time.  It is therefore better to plan taking the train on the first day.  A sudden train strike will be much more frustrating if you are far away on the last day of your trip!  It is much more relaxing to simply cycle into town on the last day.

 

Example 1:

 

  • Take the train to Toulouse, Castelnaudary, or Carcassonne and cycle back to Béziers along the Canal Du Midi.
  • Pick up luggage stored in our garage.  Spend a day in Béziers and take the airport shuttle back to the airport the next day or take the TGV high speed train to another exciting city in Europe.  Paris is about 3 1/2 hours by TGV from Béziers.  There is also a direct train to Barcelona from Béziers.

 

Example 2:

 

  • Take the train to Toulouse and cycle to Sète following the Canal Du Midi, stopping in Béziers for a night.  You can swap out luggage if you desire.
  • Take the train from Sète back to Béziers.  Return bike and pick up luggage.

 

Example 3:

 

  • We deliver bikes to your starting point anywhere along the Canal Du Midi.
  • You get fitted to the bikes and pack your panniers.  Empty suitcases and excess luggages can be given to us at time of bike delivery to be stored for you in Beziers.
  • We pick up the bikes at your end point anywhere along the Canal Du Midi.  Your empty suitcases and excess luggages will be returned to you at this time as well.
  • Luggage storage during your trip is free.
