Whether you prefer a road bike or a mountain bike, from Molières you can set off to discover the beautiful landscapes and magnificent villages of the “Périgord Noir” and “Périgord Pourpre”

Mountain bikers will appreciate the hiking trails, prepared by the department. Some loops start or pass through Molières. These circuits are suitable for hikers, mountain bikers and horse riders. If you prefer longer routes, it is perfectly possible to combine several loops.

For road cycling enthusiasts – whether with an electric or normal bicycle -, the many quiet and charming country roads will make you happy.

However, don’t forget that in the Perigord, the terrain is very hilly. This certainly contributes to the charm of the country. But if you want to ride a bike here, it is better to have a minimum of physical preparation to fully enjoy your two-wheeled outings.

Kaat, from “Steps by Kaatje”, takes you on a bike ride from Molières to Monpazier and back.

If you prefer a flatter route, from Molières, we can only advise you to put your bike on your carrier and take it by car to

  • Lalinde to follow the Canal  towards Mauzac or Tuilières, or to
  • follow the “Voie Verte“, built in 2020, which takes you along the Dordogne river from the Tuilières dam to Bergerac.

Both of these routes are very pleasant and can be done with children. Read this article on the “Voie Verte” or the one on the route along the “Canal de Lalinde” for more information.

There is something for all tastes and levels, so what are you waiting for to get on your bike?
