    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).

    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.
