Salvation ! Today, the idea was to go and discover the cycle paths of the forests of western Paris. Chevreuse, Dampierre by road then towards km36, the Maréchaux trail to Les Essarts (10km of cycle path in the forest). Passage through the Volcélest du Perray brewery (very good beers but closed 😪). Then towards km54, again 15 km of beautiful cycle path through the forest. Then until Mesnuls it is more of a horse track, like towards km77, to be avoided because it is a little hard in the slack 😅. The rest of the forest roads are a real treat! A great outing if not for the cruel lack of bakeries or open bistros in this beautiful countryside.

For a change, departure from Lavall and the usual reverse route from the Roc del Grill to the basin, via the tower and the Andreu do. Then direction the St Laurent chapel and the ori. After that, do not follow the trail but take the trail to the right at km 10.7 to reach the Mas Blanc before the mimosas campsite.

Crossing the Albères on the mountainside, that
goes up, then it goes down, then it goes up ...
but whyii? 😅
The DFCI tracks are passable but rather by mountain bike because sometimes badly done, as for the descent of the chapel, when the feet no longer touch the pedals, nothing works anymore 😏
The path between Mas Bordes and Mas d'en Paco is difficult.
Beautiful cycle path between Saint-Genis and Argelès for the return.
Physical but very nice. This outing can be extended to Montesquieu and more rolling variants are possible 👍

Mountain stage for today 😅 direction Collioure then the ridge road, target the Madeloc tower via the Taillefer batteries. It climbs! Then descent to Cosprons then return by the coastal road.
Everything on the road except the part towards Taillefer by a rolling track, and the climb to Madeloc (1.5 km) by a hiking trail too bad for me, I carried the bike on 2/3, faster! Mountain bikers take it downhill, but me with my old plastic Vbrakes rigid, I don't like so much 😅

Left for a breakfast in Collioure by the coastal path, and why not a few tapas at noon, and why not a return by boat to change 😁 I have done it hundreds of times but we never tire of it, c still beautiful 👍 Restaurant La Treille, very good and correct price, Collioure-Argel shuttle bus from € 10.
