About Angstrom

I live near Montpellier in southern France and explore our wonderful region, mainly by touring bike.
Habitant à côté de Montpellier, je randonne à vélo sur routes et chemins (gravel) dans la région au sens large, de la Lozère, les Cévennes au pays Cathare en passant par la Provence et même plus loin lors de petits périples en cyclo-camping.

      Very nice walk on the western plain of Montpellier. Some unpaved sections ==> Gravel.
      Not mean. We went with 28 tires.
      Pretty capitelles on the Cournonsec / Montbazin sector.
      The old village of Cournonsec is very pretty. It is worth the detour (and the climb).

      Another tour of the best around Montpellier, mostly on very small roads. Just 2km inevitable on the D986, route de Ganges.
      This tour is a must to discover the hinterland of Montpellier.

      Here is a superb tour that I classified as gravel because of the descent from the Les Aires plateau to the resurgence of the Sorgue which is done by a stony path that we descended by road bike very slowly, with passages to hand bike feet.
      The village of Bastide des Fonts is a jewel without brilliance but a jewel all the same thanks to its location on the edge of the cliff, which allows you to embrace the view towards the South West, the mountains of Espinouse and Orb.
      The return to the Larzac plateau with a view of the Aigoual massif is also superb, as is the return through the "chaos" when arriving at Les Rives from the North.

      Return from Lunel station by following the new cycle path between Lunel and La Grande Motte. Very nice, with the very typical cabins. The brand new stabilizer dazzles well. Be careful, it's quite monotonous anyway. I was afraid of being disturbed by the noise from the road to the little Camargue, but no, that was fine. I was just 30 km / h windy.
      Be careful, a good kilometer from the edge of the canal not yet very well surfaced. It shakes and after a rain, it must be sport.

      A little more punchy outing yesterday in a beautiful evening light at the Causse d'Aumelas. Magnificent view of the mountains: Espinouse, Monts d'Orb, Mt Liausson, Pic de Vissous, etc.

      Small loop between scrubland and vineyard in contact with the Cévennes. Discovery of a small church, well renovated Protestant temple but well "lost" in the vineyard.

      Hérault bike + coach outing.
      Drop off at St André de Sangonis, after having tried (but missed by 30 seconds) the bus in Mosson.
      We made Mosson - Saint Paul and Valmalle by bike to pass the hour other than waiting at the tram stop then we started at St André.
      Very practical, especially in strong Tramontana. We had the wind at our back! 🙂
