Description

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)

This video covers the second part of The Tour de Mont Aigoual where the riders climb to the Causse Méjean from Les Vignes as described in the book THE RIDER.
