    Calling our French members!

    Hello all, rapidly approaching the annual big trip and this year going to be doing the west coast of France and then back up through central France.

    Planned route is Ferry to St Malo, then to Brest South to Saint Nazaire onwards to La Rochelle before Bordeaux where we spend a couple of nights with friends. After that its down to Millau crossing the bridge North and Southbound. From there we turn back north and up to Perigeux, Limoge and tours before finishing with a couple of days just outside Caen doing some of the D Day museums and sites.

    Any of our French members recommend places to see roads to ride on that sort of route??

    Thanks in advance,

    Kevin

    On the North side of the Viaduct is a visitor centre / photo opportunity point. A friend of mine who lives in the middle of France is putting together a tour of the Maginot Line bunkers and installations next May +/- a month or two.

     Planning to call in at the visitor centre when there and then overnighting in Millau itself down in the valley

    Was hoping to be able to ride the old switchback road down the valley into Millau under the bridge but that appears to be closed now! 😞

    A few years ago rode down the side of the valley into Milau and it had terrible over banding .  It was raining a bit and made it a very interesting ride?

    Well almost time for the off... hotels on route booked.... Camera's front and rear powered and mounted....

    See here

    just need to get some packing done and shortly head for the ferry.

    Hopefully, the fronts coming in from the west will continue to drift to the north and miss France.

    Will update on route.... hopefully some pictures if I get the chance. But if not will flood the inbox when i get back! LOL
