Time for a little exercise following the holiday? A walk and cycle followed by lunch has been organised in the beautiful woods around and by the river Eyre in Mios. The foot paths are well defined and level, it is not too strenuous and will take approx. 1hour 40 mins.
For those feeling more energetic, or keen to make up for the Christmas excesses, there will be a cycle ride. Following coffee, we shall cycle along the 'green' Mios to Bazas cycle track AF3V,(an old railway track - now tarmac!). We would aim to reach Belin Beliet , 15km towards Bazas, and then 15km back, in time to meet the walkers for lunch. We might turn back earlier, depending on our cycling speed. This route is close to the canoeing route the
BBC have taken (Salles to Biganos) in warmer times !
After lunch we could optionally make a shorter cycle excursion along the walkers' morning route, perhaps to the Bassin- or perhaps relax and recover from the morning's excursion!
Meet at the restaurant/hotel Lo’Berge in Mios at 10 am where coffee will be available. The cyclists will leave at 10.30 am and the walkers at 10.45 am. Following our activities we have organised lunch back at the restaurant. Lunch (menu of the day) including wine and coffee will be 15 euros.
Meet up time from 10 am. Cycle ride start 10.30 am. Walk start 10.45 am. Lunch at 1 pm.
Please register by 27th December as the restaurant need to know numbers. We shall pay individually at the Restaurant. Please also indicate whether you will be walking or cycling.
