Col de Pennes and Col de la Chaudière

A beautiful loop in the Drôme department including a beautiful gorge, two main climbs/cols, as well as six more smaller cols passed along the way. Starting alongside the Drôme river, the route leaves the main plain and heads into the Gorges de la Roanne. I would follow the Roanne river for roughly half the route, but the early stretch, perhaps the first 15 kms, are the most fun. Riding through the gorge there are fun looking little side roads on both sides. I would take one of them as a...

Col de Rousset Plus 10 More Vercors Cols

This is a spectacular loop on scenic, quiet roads through the Vercors Massif. It crosses at least 11 cols (some you won’t even notice), and comes near several others but the feature climbs are Col de Rousset and Col de la Bataille. As I’ve mentioned many times, the Vercors massif is one of the most interesting yet overlooked cycling regions in the Alps. I’ve been putting together a cycling guide for the region and realised I’d never cycled one of its most interesting climbs: the south sid...

French Postman Named Horse Spent 33 Years Building a Castle of Pebbles

Is This The Temple of Angkor Wat? The very eccentric Ferdinand Cheval (his real name) built a striking palace entirely made of pebbles he collected on his postal work route. He was a modest 19th-century postman in the town of Hauterives, in the Drome region, a rural and remote part of France. On a special day in 1837, while walking his 18-mile work trek by foot - not even a bicycle was available to him - he picked up one stone of original shape, and the rest is history. This was the foundation...
