The Rider part II - Climb to Causse Méjean
The road is empty and narrow. Everything here has to do with stone. Stones on the road, overhanging rocks.
Everywhere the bleached elephant gray of stone. Along the road poppies and hundred-meter markers. Lots of poppies and few hundred-meter markers.
A hairpin turn, every once in a while a view below. It’s all there: height, clear water, rugged crags. ‘The riders had little opportunity to admire the breathtaking landscape.’
From the book THE RIDER by Tim Krabbé (a must read book for every cyclist)
