The Rider part III - Causse Méjean (Col de Rieisse) - Meyrueis

The climb is over. Or is it? I’m not sure any more. The road is moving away from the gorge now, into the highlands.
Occasionally there’s a view out over clear fields, past bushy little trees. We all shift, almost at the same moment.It’s colder here.
This isn’t a climb any more, this is a faux plat.

From the book THE RIDER  by Tim Krabbé (a must read book for every cyclist)

This video covers the third part of The Tour de Mont Aigoual where the riders reach the top of Col de Rieisse and going down to Meyrueis to finish the first loop as described in the book THE RIDER.
