Linked to the Via Rhôna and taking the 'Via Venaissia' voie verte (designated cycle path), this cycle route in the Côte du Rhône offers a rhythmic sensory experience, all year round, through the cycle of the vines and life on the vineyards. From the fertile plain of the banks of the Rhône and the Roman history of Orange, the route is mostly signposted towards the Dentelles de Montmirail mountain range, the Uchaux massif and the Northern foothills of the Ventoux. It passes through hilltop villages and their castles, some of these villages being AOC Côtes du Rhône - Châteauneuf du Pape, Beaumes de Venise, Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Cairanne, Rasteau, Vinsobres etc.
