Coffee Stops: Peyrat-Le-Chateaux The Bellerive friendly English owned where you can get a real cuppa tea. Oradour-sur-Glane town centre a good place for a lunch stop, Eymoutiers on the way back.

Description: The D940 to Peyrat-le-Chateaux is absolutely awesome by the time you get to Eymoutiers you will be in rythm with the bends but once you start to climb out of Eymoutiers you will be grining from ear to ear and wanting to go back again once you have had a cup of rosey lea in Peyrat-le-Chateaux. If you were not sure of left or right hand bends you can be asured that they will be coming together after the ride thus far. The road narrows slightly from here to the A20 but still interesting as far as twistie goes, though some might be out of sync. The road once crossing the A20 to Oradour is through a plethra of small typically French towns, but once you get to Oradour you realise the horrors which had befallen the area during June 1945. The route back is down a duel carriageway to the A20 for a couple of junctions before heading once more down a cracking fast bike road to Eymoutiers before once again picking up the D940s smooth bends back to Treignac.
