Map of area around Aix en Provence

I'll be spending a week in Aix next spring cycling the surrounding areas. I'm looking for a recommendation for a fairly detailed road map that would show secondary and tertiary roads with a circumference of about 75 KM around Aix.

Thank you!

The relevant maps from the Michelin 1:200,000 series. They show every road from motorways to rural one-lane chemins, as well as cycleways where they exist. There is a bookshop on the Cours Mirabeau that sells them, as do most gas stations.

Please pick-up a copy of the Michelin Map # 340 (1/ 175,000) in the Local Series (Bouches-du-Rhone, Var). While it covers an area that is considerably larger than that which you will be exploring by-bike, it is quite detailed, AND has the most scenic routes highlighted in green. It's certainly a good starting-off point - and probably, any local bike-rental business will have still more detailed maps with notations regarding super-scenic routes.

You can order local French Michelin maps internationally online from Stanfords the worldwide map specialist.

Somewhat bizarely they are cheaper then they are in France from supermarkets etc.
