The adventure begins at the parking du Gardon in downtown Alès. From the very first pedal stroke, we join the voie verte, which takes us safely away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our itinerary follows the signs for the cyclo-découverte loop, marked with markers. Under the gentle shade of acacias, we let ourselves be guided alongthe Galeizon valley.This is how we reach the Pont des Camisards, one of those evocatively-named bridges that majestically cross le Gardon.
Once we’ve crossed the bridge, our trajectory turns towards Saint-Jean-du-Gard. Two kilometers of low-traffic road, in the company of the melodious river, connect us with the charming village that is Saint-Paul-la-Coste.
