A motorbike holiday in the south of France, there is something for every biker in the Cévennes
Motorcycling is very popular here; it’s logical, here a biker still has plenty kilometres of fun ahead of him, and the local people are used to sharing the road with motorcyclists.
The Cevennes is an ideal region for bikers who love to drive around curves and feel at home in mountainous terrain. A beautiful region with all the ingredients for a great motorbike holiday: southern sun, good asphalt and an overwhelming nature that changes with every turn.
In short, the Cevennes is a very pleasant region for a motorbike holiday.
Crossing the Cévennes by motorbike
The beginning and end of the season are the ideal seasons to explore this region by motorbike and make beautiful trips. In the summer, it is more crowded and it can get very hot, especially when wearing motorbike equipment.
The bike routes through the Cevennes are very varied and challenging for motorbike enthusiasts. Ride on the Corniche des Cévennes, a very nice ride with 1000 bends and almost as many beautiful views. The Gorges de la Jonte and the Gorges du Tarn offer endless driving and viewing pleasure. And by motorbike to the highest peaks of the Cevennes, Mont Lozère and Mont Aigoual, your biking technique will be well practiced.
Motorcycling in the mountains
The highest mountains in the Cévennes are Mont Lozère and Mont Aigoual (1702 m and 1567 m), which are part of the Massif Central.
For example, go up the Mont Lozère and return by the Col de la Croix des Vents. You will be rewarded with magnificent views along the way, even as far as the Mediterranean on a clear day.
Mont Aigoual by motorbike
The Cévennes have their own Mont-Ventoux; the Mont-Aigoual.
Go up the Mont Aigoual by the mythical passes of the Col du Pas, the Plantiers, the Col de l’Asclier, the Col de la Tribale and Valleraugues. Make a nice round-trip to the Cirque de Navacelles with many beautiful hairpin curves.
Back home at the Miracle, you will be full of beautiful impressions when you put the bike back on the stand.
