63,88 km cycling route from Bugeat to Clergoux

From Bugeat, your cycling adventure along La Vagabonde cycle route continues through the Massif des Monédières, a granite upland characterized by dry moorlands, classified a Natura 2000 zone for its exceptional fauna and flora. This distinctly steep stage leads you by bike right up to the summit of the Massif du Suc au May (at 908m), then on to the Puy de la Monédière (at 922m), affording you spectacular views. At this altitude, look across the plateau and down the valleys of various streams and rivers, including the Corrèze. On clear days, you can even see the ancient volcanic heights of the Cantal, to the east in the Auvergne. Drink in the fresh air in these peaceful natural surrounds. What’s more, the cycle route takes you to one of the most recent time-trial locations in the Tour de France, between Lestards and Chaumeil, a stretch that will give your legs a good work-out!
