This 17 km stretch will be the next to be officially opened, hopefully in 2022. It is largely ready for use, with just two short stretches of on-road cycling required. Mostly gentle elevations, with just one series of three steeper climbs.
The cycleway welcomed
There are plenty of walkers and joggers already using the EV8. Most roads between local villages do not even have a pavement.
But also by motor vehicles
This sectioned was laid just a few weeks before. A local farmer is happier using the cycleway rather than the adjacent road.
The station buildings are now being used by the village school.
Short on-road stretch
Until a nearby bridge is rebuilt, cyclists need to use this 200 metre stretch of main road when leaving Barjols.
Much of the EV8 from Barjols to Sillans-la-Cascade has now been cleared and re-surfaced. But as of yet it is not officially open.
A few bridges are missing, and there is a stretch east of Rognette that has not yet been developed due to the D560 taking over the old railway line route. But otherwise there are some great rides to be had. Plus there is a pleasant diversion, or “boucle” through the village of Pontevès as an alternative.
