I'm sorry for the delay in responding, but the resumption of activity is intense.

Superb hike, very friendly reception and gites, we have or make the last stage because of heavy rain that lasted all day.

At Aire de Côte, the person from the gite advised us to take the forest track rather than the GR which became very difficult to ride. After the Mont Aigoual, we were indicated during our descent in the forest a variant which allows us to reach a crete path which offers a magnificent panorama: even if it is less long, it is much more varied than the forest.

In short everything was perfect, we will come back to do the last stage.

See you soon.

Good morning, sir,
My apologies for the delay;
My general impression is very favourable: I appreciated the diversity of the landscapes I travelled through and the sites I visited;
As it was quite hot that week, we enjoyed the swimming pool in Meyrueis or swimming in the Tarn...
in Ste Enimie which gave us a good reboost before going up on the Causse de Sauveterre.
The sites of reception were very different but all received us very well (mention to the young couple of the lodging of the 1st day).
In the end, there are a lot of beautiful memories in your head (Aigoual, Ste Enimie,) and welcoming people, what more could you ask for!
I thank you again for your beautiful performance
See you later for another raid of your composition.



This bike-raid requires the participants to be in a good shape, to be able to practice mountain bike on a steep ground. You should practice Mountain Bike few weeks before your trip, it's better if you pratice regularly all year long. Going to the gym can also help to be fit for this trip.
