Layout and works in progress

The state of the cycle route and its layout

The Scandibérique is laid out along minor roads and greenways

  • Details on the route, including the stretches on greenways and on roads are given at the level of the maps accompanying the pages devoted to the various stage descriptions.
    Tracks for the greenways and cycle routes.

Distinction voie verte et voie partagée

  • The descriptions of the various stages complement the information on the layout of the route and its signposting, as well as signalling if there are any difficulties along the way or not.
  • Finally, the stages are graded according to level of difficulty: I’m a beginner/ with the family; I’m used to cycling; or I’m used to climbing (for the stages down south, where you cross the Pyrenees)
  • You can select stages according to their level of difficulty here
