This is an amazing circuit for the tourer who likes to get the knee down occasionally but wants a beautiful, interesting rural route with lots of cafes and sightseeing. Bourdeilles and Brantome are stunning riverside loacations and the riverside route until you get to St Pardoux is legendary. Great out of tourist season (I am lucky, I live here!) Roads are pretty good here - the main bits have sone great straights and the twisty bits will give you the opportunity to flick it around. You need plenty of respect for the rural nature of the area (locals forget everything they learned the moment they pass their test)but the rewards are amazing. Take half a day by stopping off at every opportunity to get a coffee fix ( you will be buzzing by the end of it) or do what I do - the whole circuit then repeat the bit to Brantome (amazing section) and have lunch there. Oh yes, and if you Do decide to do it, e-mail me first and I will join you!!!!
