A day trip with friends

The ViaRhona is great for a fun day trip with friends. In one day, you have the time for a superb bike ride departing from Valence, to the north of the area, to visit a wine cellar and then back to Valence.

Morning: to Romans by bicycle

•    You'll leave Valence and head north along the ViaRhôna. 

•    You'll ride alongside the Rhône until you reach Pont d'Isère.

•    Then take the green cycle path to Romans-sur-Isère.


Lunchtime: lunch in an Italian restaurant

•    For your lunch break today, you'll discover a little Italian restaurant. Il diciotto , Avenue Gambetta in Romans, serves excellent pasta dishes. It's the perfect way to recharge your batteries after a morning of exercise.

Afternoon: "Entre Joyeuse et Collines" itinerary


•    It's time to get back on your bike and follow itinerary 11 "Entre Joyeuse et Collines"

•    You'll cross through several villages and climb up a small hill. If it's a sunny day, the area and panoramic view will make all that pedalling worthwhile. 

•    Stop off in Triors at the Domaine de Château Vieux . You can take part in a wine tasting session there. To be consumed in moderation because you'll need to cycle back to Valence afterwards.

•    Once you reach the end of this itinerary, you'll head back to Valence along the same route that you followed in the morning.
