  1. This time in the Cevennes. Been looking at some roads for while here and have to say they are bloody superb. Will post routes when back in front of a computer.
    Fir now think Mende to Alės...ish.
    Some great scenery but also some fantastic scratchers roads
    Couple of nice pictures.. 20210901_161940.jpg

  3. Big fumbs again
     
  4. Did you ride along N106 then?
     
  5. Yes
    But then turned north just before Alès and headed back toward Mende.
    I like. A lot.
    I tend to avoid N roads, but that is 'a corker'.
    Happy day out with well used tyres

  8. Pigged out on 3 course meal. Left some wine in the bottle ( gone a bit soft)
    Ready to sleep, ride, repeat in the morning.

    1st impressions were 'its a minger!' But...no, service, food, wine very good. But hey, this is not UK

  18. After that it was a random zig zag towards Saint Flour, some cols, passes and towards Aurillac.
    Then fairly direct D roads back home.
    Some views on the way back.
    Btw, not many pictures of stunning roads as I was enjoying riding them too much to stop :upyeah:

  19. The routes I wanted to do, one the N106, turning off just before Alès.
    The other the D906 up to Villefort (stunning...and fast).
    Usually I keep away from N roads, due to traffic and policing, but this one is a cracker!
