L'Hom / L'Esperou The Grande Traversée du Massif Central by mountain bike
27,23 km cycling route from L'Hom to L'Esperou
Elevation of the stage
The ascent of L’Aigoual (1,565m above sea level) presents a major challenge, but the views become more and more spectacular the higher you get. At the summit, you enter the French county of Gard. Stop to visit the unmissable Météosite on the top, explaining how the climate ceaselessly changes. The descent to L’Espérou alternates between winding singletracks and wider tracks. After a short ascent to the Col de la Serreyrède, you can descend to L’Espérou via a choice of cycle paths regularly used for the Bouticycle Aigoual – the second-oldest mountain-biking event in France, which has taken place every year since 1989!
