Saveurs de France

Bikecat cycling tours, cycling in Girona, Transpyrenees cycling tour

Getting away for a couple days just over an hour away in France, hearing a different language and feeling the culture of the little towns near the Pyrenees is the perfect escape. Céret is a beautiful village famous for cherries and they are good! The French do such a wonderful job preserving the antique and keeping everything so picturesque.

We also researched a new cycling loop that goes over the border from Spain that feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. Roads that were built over mountain paths that brought safety to those fleeing the Civil War in Spain and helped fill the pockets of smugglers.
