Activity for Life 2021

Activity for Life 2021 - Thursday 2nd Sept - Sunday 5th Sept  Carbonne to Fronsac

It's time to start your planning - as we are - for the 2021 edition of Activity for Life.

This year we are travelling from Carbonne 31390 to Fronsac 31440 in the South West of France and this year we are including a walk as well as a bike ride.

The bike ride (otherwise known as the Garonne Challenge) will follow the Parcours Cyclable de la Garonne for virtually its full length, from glimpses of the Pyrenees at Carbonne to ending up right in the mountains alongside the river at Fronsac, not very far from the Spanish border.
 
The Saturday cycle event is a circular tour taking in the lovely Neste Valley with our lunch stop (along with the walkers) being nestled below the UNESCO World Heritage site of Saint Bertrand de Comminges (known locally as the Mont St Michel of the south). 
 
The walkers have the opportunity of a circular tour starting and finishing at Valcabrere with its superb mosaics and visiting the historic and magnificent cathedral and town at St Bertrand de Comminges. 
 
 Our Friday and Saturday night accommodation is at Montrejeau overlooking a lake and with the mountains behind. We have reserved 9 x lovely wooden 2 bedroomed chalets on a ‘first come, first reserved’ basis.
 
On the Saturday late afternoon  we are hoping to give those who want to the opportunity of visiting the caves at the Grottes de Gargas before organising a group meal at Le Paleo restaurant alongside. 
 
There is something for everyone, from shorter flat cycle rides, to longer day rides to the pictureque walk.
