We are always excited to have the opportunity to meet new people and introduce them to share our special region of France, the Avant Monts and our neighbouring Communauté de Communes, referred to as the real South of France. We had our guests, a fantastic quartet for 3 days of superb riding in hotter that August conditions.
Early starts were needed to beat the unseasonally hot weather, which gave us the chance to enjoy the clear cool morning air, before the heat of the sun bit. Our timing was perfect arriving at lunchtime to enjoy a variety of sublime locally sourced cuisine under vine covered terrasses, or parasols. Of course being in the middle of the biggest wine region of France, chilled Rosé was always close at hand to aid cooling!
The afternoons were to hot for our regular afternoon activities, so we spent them in the best place to cool down, the River Orb, at Cessenon and Roquebrun. Indulgent. Relaxing. Perfect. Cycling Holidaying at its best!
Nancy and Allan, Elizabeth and Haydon, it was a great pleasure to introduce your to the Avant Monts. We look forward to next time we get to ride with you.
