The Canigou is a massif in the French Pyrenees, near Perpignan, with a top alt. 2733. At alt. 2050 you find Chalet des Cortalets. To this Chalet is a path that is used by tourist and the mountaineers from the CAF. I cycled this path in august 2008 starting in Prades at alt. 345. From Prades the road goes to Villerach. This is about 5 km. After Villerach the path starts and the asphalt stops. From here it is mainly rocks, but not to bad to cycle. According to the Michelin-map its 20 km to the Chalet. Up to Mouline, a refuge at alt. 1100, it is not difficult. Then it becomes harder. The last 300 meters up are more or less difficult or maybe I was to tired. The quality of the path became more worse and went steeper up. The views are very nice. It is very quit, just a few cars passed, mainly suv. At the chalet you can get drinks or have a meal. Going down, the shocks aren’t a luxury.
