by bike

Avignon can be reached by bike from three European countries, and is located on cycle routes between the sea and the mountains. Take the time to discover Avignon and its region and explore the south of France by bike, the Mediterranean is not far away!

815 km long, the ViaRhôna route will take you on a journey! Starting from Lake Geneva to reach the Mediterranean, the 25 stages of the ViaRhôna allow you to discover various landscapes and historical, cultural and gastronomic heritage, passing through greenways and peaceful shared paths.

NEW ! After covering a few kilometers, the route reaches the banks of the Rhône and crosses it via a magnificent suspended footbridge, which offers a breathtaking view of the Sauveterre dam. Inaugurated in autumn 2023, this construction offers a passage to Avignon across the Barthelasse island, the largest river island in Europe.

Discover the Mediterranean arc thanks to La Méditerranée à vélo, a cycle route that connects the Pyrenees to the Alps from Spain to Italy, via France. From mountain to mountain, passing through lakes, marshes, canals and a sublime heritage inherited from the Roman Empire, experience the Mediterranean differently!
From Avignon, join this cycle route via the ViaRhôna from Beaucaire: stage 19 of the ViaRhôna.
