28,32 km cycling route from Saint Geniez d'Olt et d'Aubrac to La Canourgue

Ever higher, ever more beautiful. Cycling starts on the pretty D509 along the banks of the Lot as far as Pomayrols. From there, it's a seemingly endless climb through the green twists and turns of a wild chestnut grove to the approach of Saint-Laurent-d'Olt. The route is refreshed by the "boraldes", the powerful streams that flow down from the Monts d'Aubrac. The end of the stage is more leisurely, leading to the gateway to Lozère, to La Canourgue, the "little Venice of Lozère". Welcome to Lozère, the highest department on the route and the least populated in France. What a promise! The route to Mont Lozère is currently being defined.
