Canal du Midi, near Mirepeiset and Salleles-d'Aude

Perhaps one of the most enjoyable pursuits is cycling - and the Canal du Midi provides tow paths and tracks that are perfect for a day's outing. The plane trees that line the canal provide excellent protection from rain, sun, and wind. A village or a canal side restaurant can provide a place to stop and relax.

Here the Canal du Midi is on the straight near its connection with a canal that goes off in the direction of Narbonne.
