The Mediterranean by bike is the French part of the EuroVelo8, the cycling route crossing 11 European countries from the south of Spain to Cyprus. In France, the Mediterranean by bike runs for 850km from Le Perthus to Menton.

The itinerary offers a diversity of remarkable landscapes: mountains of the Pyrenees or the Alps, ponds of the Narbonnaise, the Languedoc or the Camargue gardoise, canals of the Midi or the Rhone to Sète, the Provencal hinterland and the beaches of the Languedoc, the Roussillon and the French Riviera.
