Châteaux de la Dordogne

Manoir de Tarde, Dordogne, France

Long - Hilly - New

This is a longish but flattish ride with only two climbs through classic Dordogne countryside. Château de la Malartrie is situated in the first village of La Roque-Gageac and Château de Beynac (featured in the film Chocolat) soon follows. After a ride though beautiful scenery we eventual reach Château des Milandes, once owned by Josephine Baker a civil rights activist, entertainer, and French Resistance agent. Finally, be warned, there is a brutal climb up to Château de Castelnaud before descending back to the start point beside the Dordogne.
