La Courtine (route No.862)

“This ride begins in Bellelay, a village well known for its abbey and the Tête de Moine cheese. We were in a group and I knew that the day would be tough for me because the route alternates between climbs and descents in the rugged landscape of the Petit-Val and towards the mountain of Moron. We had decided to take our time, eating on the way and enjoying the beauty of a wild and extremely varied landscape. Even though I was the slowest of our group, I have no regrets, because I had a wonderful day out.”
