Description

What could be nicer than a bike to discover a region with the wind in your face? This complete circuit of the Pays de Nay enables you to discover everything, from the hills of the piedmont to the plain, across fields, woods and right up to the riverbanks of the Gave. It’s a varied landscape where beautiful villages follow one after the other, against the backdrop of the Pyrenean mountains. A key element of Nay’s lowland landscape, the canals date back to the Middle Ages. They were used for irrigation and to power mills and hammers. They played a vital role in Nay’s industrial growth in the 19th century. The water intake at Coarraze on the right bank gave rise to the Lagoin canal, which feeds into the stream of the same name and the canal of the plain. On the left bank upstream of the Claracq bridge, the canal of the Grau flows into the Escourre and feeds the canal of the Gaou.
