From Mirepoix to Lavelanet

Le chemin des Filatiers
One of the greenways

In the Cathar Pyrenees

Let’s go to the Cathar Pyrenees to discover the Chemin des Filatiers by bike.

Here is the first section of the future V81 greenway in the foothills of the Pyrenees. This 38km cycle route between Mirepoix and Lavelanet invites you to stroll through a region marked by Cathar castles, nature and the textile past. History and a change of scenery are at the end of your handlebars!

The Chemin des Filatiers à vélo offers an easy itinerary between the Ariège and Aude regions. Built on a former railroad line that once linked the hinterland of the Ariège Pyrenees to the Languedoc, the V81 is now a soothing route that passes through pretty medieval bastides.

A family-friendly route with no difficulties, today favoring VTC, electric bike, mountain bike and Gravel.
