I have created a map of the area loosely from Agde round to the border of Spain and roughly 100kms inland which is basically Pyrenees Orientales, Aude, Herault and a bit of Ariege.
It includes the majority of aires, some FP sites, (more to follow) Wild Swimming points*, Places of interest, Walks through gorges, Beaux Villages, Natural hot springs, Le Petit Jaune train stations and cycle routes that took my fancy (old railway lines)

I have done this before and allowed access to change things, unfortunately someone did and destroyed the whole of Germany map, so it is available in a read only format.
This still allows you to click on the map and see what has been written and a link to google maps on most occasions.
There will be anomalies with the map eg. the disused railway line routes may not be entirely accurate but they are pretty dam close.
*Wild Swimming spots are from the "Wild Swimming in France" book, which is a stunning bible for everyone, not just wild swimmers and we have used it for 10 years to plot our holidays. If you decide to take a recommendation then ensure you purchase volume 2

If you are going to this area and would like access to be able to view and zoom in etc, bung me a PM and please dont ruin it.
If you feel you know, or found somewhere that might be worth adding then please bung me sufficient enough detail (co ordinates) to be able to add it.

Hi this is my neck of the woods, especially the cycle path as I live in St Etienne d'Albagnan, I'll have a think about possible additions, and if you have any questions or what me to check anything out send me a message, is there somewhere to see the whole map, rather than the picture you have posted.

Hi I live down here in a village in the Corbières where we have just inaugurated a new VTT cycle route and walking routes. We are also just off the GR36.
We are just buying a camper van for the first time and could make use of your guide ourselves! Or if you need anything checked could do that too.
it’s a very good idea

I have a voie vert on the map close to you from Mirepoix to Lavelnet that nearly goes through your backyard which we intend to go on.

Unfortunately as a free member I cant send you a link to the map (I dont think) but i have tried. So hopefully you can fill your boots and we can get some local info !

Cheers

For those of you not in the know,

There is a purple star near Toulouse, where you need to make arrangements with yodeli prior to attending. It says so on the map !

Great work Sir, I'm a big fan of that area, particularly dept 66. In fact I'm heading that way with my mountain bike in a couple of weeks just for a general bimble around.

We live about 5kms from this route near Belveze du Razes and have already cycled a lot of it. It is well made mostly tarmac with a few short stretches on the adjacent roads. It even has a few places with a tyre pump and water. There are many access points along the way, with parking as well..........hope this helps

Looks like we have quite a little community down there !
we've been here 23 years and love it, bought our '91 Kontiki in 2019 it was completely trashed, but during covid rebuilt all of it and now have lots of fun with it. It's great for towing our road legal Quad which gives us the flexibility to get about easily once parked up.

For those of you who found it useful, I have a less impressive map of Belgium available https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/belgium-map-created.278503/

There are a number of hidden gems on there (in my view) I havent bothered overloading it with aires and who knows if there are swimming spots in Belgium (we only go in March)

Same rules bung me a message and ask for Belgium map (or both) Still read only

For those with the map, could one of you take a look and see if there are a load more France Passion sites added. I got my FP book through this morning and have added the Aude region. I would just like to know if you lot can see them if you have already got the link.
One person reply with a YES will suffice (or No)
FOr those that dont know. FP is a system of free stopovers at vineyards etc if you buy the book which is about 20 euros a year I think.
There are numerous other threads about the pros and cons. I am just providing the locations BUT if you dont have an FP book/card then officially you shouldnt stay but each place may offer other alternatives like paying for a nights stay or just not bothering to check. DONT BLAME ME.
Herault and Pyrenees Orientale being added later

I should add, France Passion stops are purple flowers. so purple equals stopovers of some description. P for aire. flower for FP and if you click the actual icon it tells you what it is eg VIneyard or formagerie
