Description

This guidebook spotlights routes in the Languedoc-Roussillon Region of southern France.Climbing, coasting or gentle pedaling, cyclists want routes with hills, or they crave level routes, or perhaps both. Some that I have had conversations with need to know about the history of places along the route. All of these tourists/explorers have an opportunity to satisfy these requirements with this guidebook.The sixteen routes mapped and described here travel through many flat areas along Mediterranean beaches. Other routes are over bluffs near the Pyr n es.The route locations stretch from the Spanish border with France, to 30 kilometers northeast of B ziers. Politically, this is the Languedoc-Roussillon Region.These routes cover and cross much of the known history of Europe. Neanderthal Man emerged after the most recent ice age somewhat north of these routes. Then came Cr -Magnon. Much later the Celts were here, who were then subjugated for more than four hundred years by the Romans.Some of the people who changed and shaped this part of France include the Carthaginian Hannibal Barca, Roman proconsul Domitius Ahenobarbus (he of the Via Domitia - Roman Road - built in 118 Before the Common Era), Visigoth leader Alaric, Charlemagne and his grandfather Charles Martel, Louis the German through Louis XIV, Cardinal Richelieu, along with Napoleon Bonaparte and Napoleon III.Pierre-Paul Riquet's great seventeenth century achievement, the Canal du Midi, relied on the ingenuity and guts of the Region's people.Included with each route is the latest method for listing Waypoints that locates its longitude and latitude in degrees, minutes and seconds, and in digital format.Basic data are included on selecting a community and a g te, bringing your bike or renting, having a vehicle, driving in France, what to bring, and buying groceries.As with all other BICYCLE YOUR FRANCE guidebooks, this guide also offers a companion, QUEUE SHEETS, with just the Waypoint GPS located listings, route maps and elevation profiles.Details: 116 pages; 11" x 8.5"; English; 16 two-page color route maps; 14 town maps and descriptive graphics; 175 color photographs.In addition to the print format, this guidebook is available for Kindle .- - - If you have any questions or comments on this area of France, please contact me here in Florida USA at wjmoore@tampabay.rr.com - also on Facebook (Walter Judson Moore).
