With the confinement over, we’ve dusted off our bikes and have started exploring the region around Toulouse on Sunday mornings.
Pedaling south, we kept the Garonne river on our right. After only 15 minutes, the landscape shifted from urban to rural, and for about an hour we had a pleasant journey over a mix of bike paths, bike lanes, and local roads.
Le Parc du Confluent remains closed. After passing that, we were now along the Ariège River. We made it to the south end of Lacroix-Falgarde and passed the Pont de Fer, a small bridge that is badly in need of repair and that locals are trying to save.
At this point, there is the start of a dedicated bike and hiking path. We opted to turn around and leave that trail to explore another day.
