Description

An easy ride without technical difficulties. Set off from the Es Bòrdes church in the direction of Artiga de Lin. After some 600 metres, cross the Còc bridge and head up the dirt track towards the leafy spruce forest called Sapertega. The climb is very pleasant. Just before km 4, take the track on the right and begin the descent to Pont d’Arros. From here, head back to the right along the Camin Reiau to Es Bòrdes.

This is a refreshing ride with little variation in height, where you’re sure to come across other cyclists. Very good views of the villages of Vilamòs and Arres, on the other side of the Garonne valley. The section of Camin Reiau between Pont d’Arròs and Es Bòrdes is one of the best preserved stretches, with highlights including the bridge over the river Joeu, the stone walkway and the ancient culvert.

A good stretch coincides with the more challenging Route 7.
