    Fantastic activity; 3 of us went, you must phone and book, and takes cash only. Answer machine may be full but keep trying, it is run by volunteers. The whole experience was about 3 hours, hour ish one way, a stop for icecream and light refreshments where they turn the carts around; which is about 45mins. The run back was a lot quicker downhill. Almost all the way is through trees, over a few road crossings, just close your eyes and peddle like crazy!. The volunteers were excellent, looked after my elderly mother, and were very respectful.

    We had great fun here. There’re different trip options to different places but we opted for the 2 hours to Thiviers (1hr go & 1hr back). We had a blast & great exercise too! Definitely going back for another one!

    A nice way to see a bit of France. Using old railways and human cycle power (you can hire an electric-assisted one for a little more), you can take a route from Corgnac to various places, taking one or two hours. The descriptions on the website are pretty accurate in terms of effort required - though suitable for children they may struggle a bit! Don't count on them being able to take card either - apparently it's frequently broken, so bring enough cash with you (though they were kind enough to let us on and then take us to a cash machine).
