extra (hill) routes - (les collines du moulin) 

Six circuits from le Moulin have been selected just for the hills, because hills are to ride up. Varying from 6.5km to 40km in length with ascents of up to 170m and a maximum gradient of 10%. These are supplementary to the circuits proposed for each day, so you can take your pick!

Similarly to the main proposed routes, the hills are represented by Route-cards, Highlighted maps and Gradient Profiles.

The table below gives details of the hills.

The elevation at le Moulin (the start and finish point of the above circuits)

is 137m above sea level, measured on the footbridge by the ford that crosses the stream.

Le Moulin is invigorating. Two of the lanes leading out of le Moulin's valley reach level ground after a little over 1km, each with climbs of around 60m. In case a prospective guest for cycling of the 'tootling' type is reading this, there is less arduous (almost flat) track following the contours out of the valley.
