On track for Mont Aigoual

De Causses en Gorges motorcycle ride

A motorcycle ride from causse noir to mont Aigoual

Starting from Millau,


the ascent of the Pouncho d’Agast, a rocky bar overlooking the town, offers breathtaking views of the town of Millau and the famous Millau Viaduct. The morning light is exceptional.

At the top, take a few minutes to head (right) to the paragliding and hang-gliding take-off area. The view is simply splendid, and the spectacle of multicolored sails twirling through the air is always spectacular.

The Causse Noir can be crossed by small roads between fields, steppe and forest, right in the middle of nature! Take a breath!

After the Grands Causses… the Cévennes.


The ascent of Mont Aigoual is one of the motorcycle classics. Unmissable!

Amateur de virolos envoûtants, ce circuit moto est pour vous. The curves of this mountain road are gentle and pleasant, whether you’re riding sporty or leisurely. Between stretches of broom, deciduous or coniferous forests, you’d almost think you were in the Alps or the Pyrenees. You do it in spring, yellow broom and undergrowth flowers accompany you; in autumn, it’s the colors of Indian summer.

And then there’s the finish at the summit: 1565m altitude, on the border of the Lozère and Gard departments, and there, the last remaining inhabited mountain weather station in France.

From this Meteorological Observatory, a 360° panorama, a breathtaking view, from the Pyrenees to the Alps by way of the Mediterranean. It’s said that the vantage point covers a quarter of France… but sometimes, no further than the tip of your nose with the fog and the cold!

The Cévennes and its wild forests are beneath our feet.
As a bonus, a cure of fresh air and a feeling of immense freedom!

2 variants

for the return journey:

Gorges de la Jonte

A short break in Meyrueis, before tackling the Gorges de la Jonte.

Set off for the Gorges de la Jonte, a route for the pleasure of the eyes and that of the driver with waltzing curves. On one side, straight cliffs pierced by the nests of griffon vultures. Keep an eye out for them, they’re sure to accompany you on your ride. On the other, the Jonte river, with all its losses and resurgences.

At the terminus, Peyreleau, classified as a Petite Cité de Caractère, the confluence of the Jonte and Tarn rivers already offers a breathtaking panorama of the high cliffs of the Gorges.

Gorges de la Dourbie

Little sister to the Gorges du Tarn et de la Jonte, they are characterized by a succession of verdant gorges and high limestone cliffs, punctuated by small, picturesque perched villages such as Cantobre, Saint-Véran, Montméjean…

The river is irresistibly attractive with its emerald, crystalline colors. What a great idea! You’re only a few km from Millau…

V à tous !
