Our 10 key attractions
Get away from it all and discover Destination Paris-Saclay by bike… and why not cycle all the way to Mont-Saint-Michel?
The Véloscénie cycle path stretches for 450 km between Mont-Saint-Michel and Paris. The itinerary is accessible to all and offers a new angle on the regions visited. The destination Paris-Saclay offers two possibilities: follow the Bièvre river to Versailles, or head for the Yvette valley and towards Limours… the choice is yours.
Travelling by bike offers us a new angle on our environment and allows us to stop whenever we feel like it. This mode of travel is now booming across cycling categories – families, couples, groups of friends – in search of new challenges.
Leave Paris behind and cycle in the safety of a vehicle-free itinerary… This is possible on the greenway to Massy. If you choose the Limours itinerary, you’ll follow the old hovertrain route which is still visible on the section between Gometz-la-Ville and Limours. This route includes the crossing of the Fauvettes viaduct from where you’ll enjoy a magnificent view over the valley.
If, on the other hand, you prefer to continue towards Versailles, then you’ll cross Verrières-le-Buisson and Igny, taking time to stop for a replenishing break. Then go on to Jouy-en-Josas and visit the Musée de la Toile (canvas museum) in Jouy, at the factory founded by Oberkampf.
The Recyclerie Sportive is a Massy-based association that specialises in recycling sports equipment. The association strongly encourages more responsible consumer behaviour and promotes awareness of zero waste solutions among its members and the local population by helping them to repair or upcycle their old sports equipment. The association now collects, sorts, co-repairs and redistributes equipment via eco-responsible sales outlets. Every month, its members propose bike rides, workshops and long-distance excursions for teenagers.
