You'll have to take your car, but you can do a nice loop starting in Arles-Sur-Tech, up into the mountains, you'll find quiet roads and great views. The main road into Spain (to Le Perthus) is really, really crowded.

The coastal road over Cerbere into Spain is a nice ride.Once in Spain there are several options to do a loop.From Banyuls you can also go into Spain over Col de Banyuls:Short climb but very steep on the last kilometer.Beware of the "cattle traps" in the road on the spanish side on the descent.One would´nt wan´t to hit those at high speed :shock: .There is also the Madeloc climb which is steepest from the south side out of Banyuls.Again a short but quite scenic climb on small roads...There is a turn towards the top at 500 heightmeters which you should´nt take unless you have mountainbike gearing :!: .Or like Exar mentioned go inland to Arles s/ Tech or Prats de Mollo for some longer climbs..Plenty of options
