The Mediterranean by bike from Apt to Manosque
At the end of the greenway in the commune of Castellet, recently installed markers. The pronounced relief is then an integral part of the route until Manosque, several climbs of more than 10%, and a short section of the greenway at Céreste, which you leave on your left to go towards the Carluc ravine and Reillanne.
Be careful, the descent after Reillanne is tricky, narrow road, uneven surface, important gully (stones, branches...) after the storms. After the descent from Reillanne, at the crossroads on the D4100, 5 km of temporary route to Forcalquier.
Short passage on a paved area at St-Maime after the D513.
Smooth surface: most of this stage.
Rough surface : descent from Reillanne by the Largue road. Passage on a very short paved sector at the level of St-Maime after the D513.
Connections : Itineraries marked out by Le Luberon à vélo, all very well indicated.
Opening period (s)All year round.
