THE CANAL DU MIDI… SCANDALOUS.

The Canal du Midi has a huge media reputation.

Alas, once again, the dichotomy between reality and media image is fully proven.

In the pitiful departments of Aude and Hérault (from Port-Lauragais to Agde) there are no cycle tracks. The towpath is only a chaotic and often abominable path. It's a bike-cross path, breaking for equipment and humans… on almost 200 km!

SEE THE PAGE DEDICATED TO THE DESCRIPTION OF THE CANAL DU MIDI BY BICYCLE… A SCANDAL.
