the col de la machine is possiblly teh most firghtening road in france but the scenery is absolutely stunning if you have a stomach for heights. It goes North West from the col de Rousset and runs along the face of a cliff. The scary part is that you can see exactly how close to the edge the road is as it continues around the cliff face, and also you occasionally get to see the massive drop over the side, not helped by the low stone wall on the outside. Well worth a look just to say youve done it. If I ever go back Im going to go to the start, look from the viewing point, then turn round and go back, a truly stunning road but just too high for me!!!
Not a brilliant riding road, too tight and twisty, but the scenery is outstanding. Take the D907 that rund diagonally between millau and Mende, it's signposted Gorge du Tarn at the Mende end. Take your time to admire the views, have a raft ride down the rapids and take in the stunning new bridge at Millau.
