On the way back, the ride takes you as far as the Mur de la Peste (a dry-stone rampart) and the hills above Lagnes, before returning to Cabrières d’Avignon.

A complete cocktail, where the pleasure of riding on good paths combines perfectly with the pleasure of exploring unspoilt nature and outstanding dry-stone heritage.

Not to be missed!

Important: Watch your speed on the descent – you might not be the only one on the trail!
Variant: The route can be extended to the east by following circuit no 46, “Petit Tour de Gordes” (Little Tour of Gordes).
