Camon: the Rose Festival can also be visited by bike

On the occasion of the Camon Rose Festival, Sunday, the Cathar Pyrenees Tourist Office is organizing the 2nd edition of its “Bicycles and Roses” event.

The objective is to encourage the public to cycle to this event which will celebrate its 21st anniversary. “We also want to promote soft mobility via the greenway which connects Lavelanet to Bram and Mirepoix,” confides Philippe Palvini, the director of the tourist office. It is above all a family event, without the spirit of competition, full of good humor to have a great day”.

One of the most beautiful villages in France

Camon is the only village in Ariège to be labeled “Most beautiful village in France” thanks to its remarkable heritage. And the Rose Festival orchestrated by the Ostal per totis association is the most beautiful day of the year for the town; the 2nd flower acquired five years ago as part of the “Villes et villages fleurs” label is not usurped. These are all good reasons to head to Camon on Sunday.

Departures will be organized in the morning with breakfast and a gourmet stop on the journey from Mirepoix, Moulin-Neuf and Lavelanet. Thanks to the cooperation and support of the tourist offices of Limouxin and the Audoise Pyrenees, departures are also planned from Belvèze-du-Razès and Chalabre.

Courses accessible to all

Within everyone’s reach, the longest section is less than 25 km flat without a car, 100% on a greenway. The organizers have thought of the little legs of the youngest and the “couch pedalers” by providing a coach shuttle with a bicycle trailer for a comfortable return home to Lavelanet, Mirepoix and Belvèze-du-Razès.

The activity is free but it is essential to register on the tourist office website: www.pyreneescathares.com. Information available in the various tourist offices of Limouxin, Pyrénées Audoises and Pyrénées Cathares.
