Laroquebrou Boogie Woogie

102.6km

1735m of climbing

Rating: Medium to hard

 

Starting from our base, this ride in many ways typifies the region — lots of ups and downs through fantastic countryside of forests and farmland, on well-maintained, quiet roads. When not descending or climbing, for the purposes of this route description, take it as a given that you will be on undulating road with some 'bumps' along the way! None of the climbs are particularly steep. Most average between 5% and 7% gradient but there are some very short steeper sections in places. The route passes through the old quarter of Pleaux and then, around the 32km mark, the first significant climb of 5km.  A satisfying 6km descent leads into Laroquebrou (51km), famous for its imposing medieval chateaux and annual Boogie Woogie Festival. Following lunch, the road leads to a 3km climb. Crossing back into Correze from Cantal, the route descends a wooded gorge. The final 8km climb is broken up with some short descents and flats. Around the 80km mark it’s undulating for the final 20km home.
