On the road to Haut Languedoc, the Cirque de Moureze offers an unusual natural environment. The Cirque de Moureze is one of the oldest “Grand Sites” of France. The  limestone rock has been carved and sculpted by erosion creating unusual rock formations resembling a martian landscape – a unique cycling experience.

Unfortunately, no mountain goats about on the midsummer morning when we filmed this video, but they can often be seen clinging to the side of the bizarrely shaped rocks along the route.
