Cycling in France - The Massif Central (Chapter)
This is the Massif Central chapter from Lonely Planet's Cycling France guidebook.
The rugged expanses of the Massif Central make this an ideal region for combining a cycling trip with other outdoor fun - mountain biking, hang-gliding and para-gliding, strenuous walks and rock climbing are all possible. Forget designer chic: here, it's all about nature at its most dramatic.
- puff through the pedal motions of the Tour de France route up the Puy-de-Dôme
- transport and accommodation
- spend the night in a mountain buron (shepherd's hut)
Coverage includes: Environment, Climate, Volcans d'Auvergne, Towns & Facilities.
