The aim of the Vallée du Lot à vélo itinerary is to link the confluence of the Garonne – and thus the Canal des 2 mers – with Mont Lozère, following the river Lot back to its source. The route crosses the departments of Lot-et-Garonne, Lot, Aveyron, Cantal and Lozère. For the moment, the route starts (or stops) at the heart of our destination: La Canourgue, Lozère’s little Venice. The rest of the itinerary and its signposting to the sources of the Lot are planned…
