Ok, so I cheated and used a route from lonely planet's "cycling france", but I am really excited about this tour, even if it is just for 3 days. Maybe that's because its the first tour of the season.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate.

Anyway, if you're interested, I mapped out the route, Gorges du Verdon, on michelin 1:200,000 maps and put it on my site.
Check out the route here!

A trip report will follow.

Bikes: "Hildy", a Novara Randonee touring bike; a 16-speed Bike Friday Tikit; and a Specialized Stumpjumper frame-based built-up MTB, now serving as the kid-carrier, grocery-getter.

I couldn't be more jealous.

I don't think using a Lonely Planet route is cheating, any more than an Adventure Cycling route or copying someone's route from crazyguyonabike or here. It's not cheating, it's using an appropriate resource to select a great route!
