2019 New Year’s Walk or Cycle Ride with Lunch

New Year’s Walk or Cycle Ride and Lunch: Mios – Thursday 3rd January

Time for a little exercise following the holiday?  A walk or cycle ride followed by lunch has been organised in the beautiful woods around and by the river Eyre in Mios.   The foot paths are
well defined and level, it is not too strenuous and will take approx. 1hour 40 mins.

For those feeling more energetic, or keen to make up for the Christmas excesses, there will be a cycle ride


Meeting

Following a 10am meet at the hotel/restaurant LO’Berge, 27 Avenue du Val de l’Eyre, 33380 MIOS, ( Map )

10.30 coffee and 1pm lunch have been booked

Mios lies about 30 minutes SW of Bordeaux (Rocade), take A63 then A660 towards Arcachon and leave at first exit, signed to Mios. The hotel is in the town on D216, on left hand side just before the bridge over the river.  From the south (Sanguinet) it is on the right just after the bridge.


Cyclists

The cyclists will  join Phil cycling along the ‘green’ Mios to Bazas cycle track AF3V, (an old railway track – now tarmac!).

We would aim to reach Belin Beliet , 16km towards Bazas, and then 16km back, in time to meet the walkers for lunch. We might turn back earlier, depending on our cycling speed.  This route is close to the canoeing route the BBC have taken (Salles to Biganos) in warmer times !


Walkers

Norma B will lead the walkers and meet up with the cyclists for lunch


Lunch

13:00 at LO’Berge, 27 Avenue du Val de l’Eyre, 33380 MIOS ( Map )

Afternoon

After lunch we could optionally make a shorter cycle excursion along the walkers’ morning route, perhaps to the Bassin- or perhaps relax and recover from the morning’s excursion!
