Enduro Session: Trip "Les grands Causses"

The idea behind this raid is to pass 3 days between the four famous Causses : "le causse de Sauveterre", "le causse Méjean", "le causse noir" and "le causse du Larzac".
All the downhills are single-tracks trail and the way up pass by small road or passable dirt tracks.
A perfect playground for mountain-biking which has hosted the french-cup this year and will host a round of the Enduro World Series next year.

In that beautifull area declared nature reserve but also World Heritage site by the UNESCO, the limestone plateaus covered both by pine forest and drylands , end with high cliffs which dominate the Tarn, the Jontes and the Dourbie gorges.

The lodge in which we are hosted is a hamlet nestled down of the Tarn cliffs, without any road to reach it, only accessible by foot or by rowing boat.
