- My best memories are of cycling through the scent of hot herbs and pines to the chirruping of cicadas,cycling along the towpath in the dappled shade of the plane trees or snoozing by the fountain in the pretty village of Bages waiting for the cafÃ© to reopen. Seeing Carcassonne for the first time was a highlight (especially at the end of a long day's cycling!) Also memorable was the courtesy extended to cyclists by the French drivers.Brilliant! Regular briefings and excellent map packs meant we were well prepared whether we chose to cycle as a large party or smaller groups and we had plenty of time and the relevant information to consider cycling options when available. The bikes were good too and any niggles or technical problems were quickly fixed.
