In the Corrèze there is a 146km long ‘véloroute’ – a route dedicated to non-motorised transportation – between Peyrelevade in the north and Liourdres in the south. For those who love mountain biking, the north of the department has the biggest network of routes in France. There are 50 circuits through breath-taking scenery from 4 to 51 km long.
In the Dordogne, you can follow the river on the old Sarlat to Souillac railway line which has been turned into a cycle route. It is mostly flat, so ideal for families. You can also walk and rollerblade and it is accessible for wheelchairs.
From Castelnaud la Chapelle, in the Dordogne, there is a very pretty 25 km route along the Céou River to the Abbaye Nouvelle in the Lot.
Going towards the ocean, the Isle River provides another riverside route of 100 km from Périgueux to Le Pizou, on the borders of the Gironde.
