Route length: 120km
Surface: pavement, suitable for road bikes
This route is a challenging circular loop of approximately 120kms heading north west from Caux and passing through a variety of picturesque villages on it’s way to the hills.
As you reach the nature reserve, Réserve Nationale de Chasse de Caroux-Espinouse, the terrain becomes much more hilly. After a fairly steady bout of climbing, you will be rewarded for your efforts by stunning views over the rugged hills.
Keep your eyes out to catch a glimpse of the wild mountain sheep, known as mouflon, who love this terrain too.
The route returns via Saint Gervais sur Mare which is a good stopping off place if you are looking for a cafe and a rest. The surface is paved for the entire route.
