The sign of fun

I’vejust riddenmyselfdizzy down in the SouthofFrance, having almostaccidentally come acrossthe Gorgedu Verdon.Wewere planning to just spendsome timeonthe coast, butitwas wetone day so we headedinlandand came acrossthe magicofthe gorge. Eventhe roadstoitwere better thananything I’ve ever riddeninBritain; smooth,deserted and with an amazing backdrop. You keep on thinkingthatyou’ve reachedthe gorge,but when you know, youknow! It’scorner after cornerand corner,and the views are spectacular. There areplentyof places whereyou wouldn’twant to stack it,and my mate nearly had a heartattack whenhefoundthe one bitofgravelonthe road andnearly ended up in theriverGod knows how many feet below! Youcan do a decent loop around the gorge,and even though it doesn’tlookfar, once you’ve stopped and gawped at the scenery you’ll havespent mostofthe day in the area. There’s not much in the way of civilisation, but the few cafés and the like in the areaseem to be well worth stopping at.We stopped for acan of Coke and apacketofcrisps and ended up havethree courses of awesomefood.Wehad to be down on thecoastlater that day, and then headed back home.But you can restassuredthat I’llbeheading back there next year!
