Step 1

Go down to the Canal du Midi and cross the bridge. Turn left towards Lézignan-Corbières, then continue straight. Cross the bridge that crosses the Aude. When you reach the crossroads, take the small road opposite that goes up along the Sérame estate. Continue straight ahead. Enjoy the shade of the pines before passing La Bastide. You then arrive at Escales. At the intersection, go straight ahead, then turn left at the next one. You arrive in front of the famous Romanesque church of Saint Martin. Now follow the signs indicating "Montbrun, Moux". You leave the village, climb the hill then go back down to the village of Montbrun. Before the village, a small road on the right leads to the Notre-Dame-de-Colombier Chapel. The shade of its cypress trees gives you a providential freshness! Then join Montbrun. When you reach the crossroads, follow the small road on your right towards Moux. It will lead you to the entrance of the Château du Roc. Continue on this road to reach Moux. A protected passage will allow you to pass under the National Route 113 and cross it without danger. Continue on your way to Fontcouverte. Here, a small detour will allow you to stop for a tasting at the Mingraut estate. Then take the direction of Fabrezan by the D111. About 1 km after leaving Fontcouverte, turn right towards Fabrezan. You can taste the wines of the Terre d'Expression cooperative cellar located at the exit of the village in the direction of Ribaute. A detour is necessary to the Notre-Dame-de-Consolation chapel, which looks out over the wine-growing plain from the top of its small promontory. Then take the direction of Lézignan, by the D611. When leaving Fabrezan, be sure to do some shopping for Pays Cathare Aux Saveurs du Languedoc Roussillon products. About 1,5 km after exiting Fabrezan, you come to an intersection. Take a right towards Ferrals-les-Corbières. Arrived in Ferrals, cross the bridge and enter the heart of the old village. Then take the direction of Boutenac by following the D161. When you get to the village, follow the direction of Luc sur Orbieu. Then join Lézignan-Corbières. Follow the signs for the city center. Then take the direction of Roubia by taking the D67 which crosses the Lézignanaise plain towards the Aude then the Canal du Midi. Arrived in Roubia, cross the bridge and enter the village. Follow the direction of Argens. Do not miss at the exit of Roubia the Moulin de la Restanque which will introduce you to the tasting of olive oil in order to vary the pleasures! Join Argens at last. These estates, cellars and shops labeled Pays Cathare and Qualité Sud France welcome you by reservation. During the tastings (free or paid), spittoons are at your disposal to be able to get back in the saddle without danger! Possibility of delivery.

Be careful, the fire risk is often high, especially in summer, and can lead to flower bed closures. Find out before you go consulting the fire risk map for outdoor activities.
Fires strictly prohibited.
Do not smoke or throw cigarette ends into the environment. Fires are numerous and catastrophic in our region.
In case of fire or accident: give alert 18 or 112 from a cell phone.
Protect yourself from the sun and take enough water with you.
Avoid picking flowers and plants. Take away all your waste.
Close fences and keep dogs on a leash in pasture areas, villages and protected areas.

Mountain bike routes: the routes are often shared with hikers or other users (cars, tractors, etc.). Be careful and always anticipate that a pedestrian may be present around a bend to have time to brake if necessary. Pedestrians have priority in principle, slow down at crossings or stop if the configuration of the terrain requires you to do so.

Thank you and happy hiking!
