D17 / D680 / D922 / D678 / D105 / D16 : Aurillac - Mauriac - Chalvignac - Egleton - Treignac

Limousin > France > Europe

If you want to get really adventurious you could do option 1 with a detour up to the Volcano Puy Mary This is the one I would do ;) From Aurillac cut through the centre and take the D17 up to Puy Mary, at the top of puy Mary hang left down the D680 until you join the D922 to Mauriac where you take the D678 to the D105 Chalvignac cross over the river Dordogne onto the D16 to Egleton and then D16 to Treignac and Riders Rest- From Aurillac to Puy Mary and to the D922 the roads are quite narrow but twisty and the views are spectacular. From Mauriac the roads become narrow again and the surface is uneven but can be fun (and you can imagine the French Resistance scamoering through these hills) . This one is 201 Miles and is going to take you about 7 hours with stops though you may stop more often for photos.

from Aurillac take the N120 (Re signed as D1120 in places) to Argentat (duel carriageway and very streight to start) from Argentat take the D18 to Egleton where you will pick up the D16 to Treignac and Riders Rest.

Starts off reasonable technical but then opens up from Egletons for some good sticky open fast roads through the romantic Dordogne. Stopping at Argentat for Lunch then on through some winding roads and picturesque villages - along the Dordogne. before once again picking up some open country and fast twisties. You do have to cut through Brive however it is worth the effort to get to the D920 however if you want to byepass Brive drop onto the A20 (Non Toll) for a couple of junctions and get off at Donzenac to continue the route.

Treignac to Oradour-Sur-Glane and back

Limousin > France > Europe
March 7, 2009 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0
Disatnce: 156 Miles. 251 Kms

Towns: Treignac, Lacelle, Eymoutires, Peyrat-Le-Chateaux, St-Leonard-de-Noblat, Ambazac, Oredour-sur-Glane, Limoges, Le Chatenet, Chateauneuf-la-Foret

Regions: Limousin (Haute Vienne, Correze)

Roads: D132E3, D940, D5, D13, D19, D711, D9, D1141 (N141), D2000, A20 (not Toll) , D979, D160,

Attractions: Resistance Museum, Oredour-sur-Glane (Martyred Village WWII)

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.

While the route doesnt look very interesting on the map, it turned out to be a very enjoyable stretch of road. Nice road surface with sweeping bends.
