Cycling in The Vercors, France?
Has anyone cycled in the Vercors?
The landscape, roads and climbing conditions look incredible.
Here's a crazy route I mapped: VERCORS
I'm figuring that I route like this would take anywhere from 8-10 days as the grades are consistently steep -- not to mention a few days for rest and relaxation.
-do the smaller towns offer lodging? I would NOT be hauling gear on my bike
-how expensive are meals and lodging during the late Summer (August or September)
-are bicycles allowed on the park roads?
I know that I'll have to do some research on my own, but I am interested to get feedback from people who have ridden this part of France.
