Link Langeac / Saugues The Grande Traversée du Massif Central by mountain bike
Elevation of the stage
To enjoy this GTMC link, you need to start out from Langeac. First, cycle along old quays beside the Allier River. Then you alternate between broad paths and short stretches on roads, riding beside fields, up to Chanteuges and Bourleyre. A pretty, high path then allows you to dominate the Allier Valley and take in the lovely views. You have next to climb to reach the Margeride Plateau at Charraix. From this point on along this link, it’s a mix of shaded tracks through pine forest and of broad paths, sometimes tarmacked, through pasturelands. You rejoin the main GTMC route close to the Domaine du Sauvage.
