This sportive route is one of our less hilly rides and predominantly rolling country roads, with parts just a stone’s throw from the 2014 TDF route, with 4 different route options on relatively quick terrain. Pretty villages, quiet roads and far-reaching open countryside make this a great summer challenge.
