The "Flow Vélo"

An itinerary along the Charente river

Cross the countryside, the marshes and cycle along the ocean, and discover the Country of Fort Boyard by bike !

The new national "cycling path" that connects the Dordogne to Aix Island

It took seven years to allow our cyclists to finally get a cycling route that runs through our countryside. The Flow vélo is a gentle cycling path, an itinerary that runs along the Charente river,  350 kilometers which cross the Charentais vineyards: Angoulême, Cognac, Saintes, Rochefort and Fouras-les-Bains to reach the two twin lighthouses of Aix Island.

By the end of 2024, the Cycle Flow will have grown to 400 kilometres, starting in Sarlat-la-Canéda.

Description of the itinerary : 

  • 120 kilometers on the Dordogne side
  • 110 kilometers for the Charente side
  • 120 kilometers in Charente Maritime


A privileged welcome for cyclists

The "Flow vélo" rhymes with "Accueil Vélo": in Rochefort Ocean, more than 40 tourism providers are labeled by the national brand "Accueil Vélo", with adapted services and a personalized welcome for cyclists.
